Need a fun and easy side to take to a summer cookout? This Red Velvet Cornbread packs a sweet and savory combo of velvety cake and corny bread, with a sweetened cream cheese spread. It makes a great accompaniment to any barbecue feast.

Red Velvet Cornbread

Red Velvet Cornbread with Honey Cinnamon Cream Cheese

(makes 24 large squares)

Ingredients

Red Velvet Cake
(adapted from Cake Mix Doctor)

  • 1 package Red Velvet cake mix
  • 1 c buttermilk
  • 1/2c water
  • 1/4c oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cornbread

  • 2 boxes Jiffy Cornbread mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3c milk
  • 1 can (15oz) whole kernel corn, drained

Cream Cheese Spread
(why recreate the wheel?)

  • 16oz cream cheese, softened
  • 6T honey
  • 1t cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease and flour a 9×13 and an 8×8 (9×9 will do) glass pan.
  2. In large bowl, mix together cake mix, buttermilk, water, oil, 3 eggs, and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed about 2 minutes until combined, smooth, and thick.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together both boxes of cornbread mix, 2 eggs, and 2/3c milk until just combined.
  4. Pour cornbread mix into red velvet cake mix and fold together until no yellow streaks are left, then gently stir in corn.
  5. Distribute mix between two pans so that they are about equal in level (2/3 of the batter in the lager pan and 1/3 in the smaller pan).
  6. Place both pans in oven and bake 30 to 40 minutes, or until cornbread is fully cooked, springing back when lightly pressed in the middle.
  7. Meanwhile, whip together cream cheese, honey and cinnamon with electric mixer until smooth and fluffy (about 1 minute or so). Cover and chill in fridge until ready to serve.
  8. Let cornbread cool in pan for 20 to 30 minutes, then cut and serve.

It’s like a savory red velvet cake and a sweet and spongy cornbread all at the same time… and when you add the cream cheese spread and take a big bite, it’s like the party has moved from the patio to your mouth.

Unfortunately Trending: Instant Ramen Pudding

ipp

Apparently, dunking pudding in ramen is now trending on the internet. Although, are we surprised? The current ramen lineup includes (don’t hold your breath): ramen chicken wings, ramen taco shells, ramen burgers, ramen fries, ramen burritos, ramen grilled cheese and ramen pizza.

If anything, it’s about time dessert got a little ramen love. The ever-inquisitive staff at RocketNews24 decided to taste test this phenomenon, plopping a package of custard into a standard cup of hot instant ramen. The sweet custard melted into the broth, creating a creamy soup.

According the RN24‘s writer, the overall flavor made for a “pleasant experience” with “a nice blend of salty and sweet and the hot noodles and cool pudding balanced out to a comfortably warm temperature”.

ipp

With a “17 out of 22 stars” rating and a combined (ramen + pudding) price tag of $3 US, we’re not going to say we’re not thinking about trying this. Hey, we’re hungry.

How to Make Manwich Blondies with Sloppy Joe Sauce

Pop quiz, Hot Shot: You want to bake something, but you really don’t feel like going to the store to get supplies. What do you do? If you’re me, you take a look in your pantry and see Manwich (yes, tangy, tomato-y Sloppy Joe sauce) and you think, “Huh, I could make dessert with that.” So tonight at my house, we had Manwich Blondies. The original recipe I started with calls for one can of Hershey’s syrup, so the substitution was easy, and the results were a crave-worthy, sweet and savory “dessert.”

KFC Testing ‘Sweet & Savory’ Go Cups with Funnel Cake Fries

funnelcakefries

The great thing about chicken is it’s notoriously dessert-friendly. Even the craziest of palates would have to admit “steak and waffles” doesn’t quite have the same ring. So it makes a lot of sense that KFC is testing a new version of its popular “Go Cups,” now featuring funnel cake “fries” in place of potato wedges.

Now available in select locations in Baltimore, Md., the ‘Sweet & Savory’ Go Cups feature strips of fried funnel cake topped with sugar and cinnamon, along with all the regular Go Cup offerings such as Chicken Littles, Crispy Tenders, or Hot Wings.

According to Brand Eating, the cups are being tested at $2.49 a person until the infamous 4/20, which is kind of genius if you think about it. Gotta love a company that knows its clientele, *wink, wink*

TL;DR: Chicken and waffles funnel cakes just got a heck of a lot more portable, wheeeee.
