I couldn't let the holidays go by without a yummalicious recipe for you! If you've got some extra candy canes lying around, this is a perfect use for them!
Using Devil's Food Cake mix, I added 2 teaspoons of peppermint to the mix and replaced the water with milk to give the cake a more made-from-scratch flavor. Here's the rub: the batter spilled over the side of a few cone cakes while baking. I put in the usual amount of batter but it rose higher than normal. I'm guessing it was the change in liquid, so if you follow these directions, put in a bit less batter than your normally would.
Also, I used 4 cups of sugar because I find 6 cups to be too sweet. Play with it! You can always add more sugar as you go along. I read that Domino powdered sugar has a less grainy consistency than other brands. Good to know!
Place some candy canes in a baggie and crush them with a mallet or the bottom of a glass. Sprinkle on the completed cone cakes. They add a nice touch!
I wish for you a beautiful holiday season.
