KING CANDY, N.C. — You may have seen the king cake at many a barbecue joint.
It’s one of those classic recipes you’d find on the breakfast menu.
But there’s a trick to making the cake without the use of a mixer.
Read moreKing Cake, N, NC — You must make it with a stand mixer or a stand whisk.
It takes a little patience and a good set of hands.
You can even use a stand blender, if you can afford one.
You’ll need to make sure the dough doesn’t stick to the sides or bottom of the bowl, but that’s OK.
You don’t want to get that sticky mess.
Once you get it down to the flour, it’s very important to let it sit overnight.
Then you can just start working with it.
It’ll just look like this.
Let it sit for about 10 minutes to allow the dough to rest, which will allow the water and yeast to relax and the yeast to get going.
When the yeast has fully set up, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 1 minute.
The dough will stretch out and become sticky.
Now, add your cream cheese and egg whites and stir together with a wooden spoon or a wooden spatula.
It will become stiff.
This is the dough that will be the filling for the cake.
It is a bit thinner than the flour used to make the batter, so be sure to add a bit more flour in the last step.
If you’re not using a stand or mixer, be sure the flour is a medium-size size.
Next, you want to add the butter.
If your butter is very soft, you may need to add more.
This will keep the cake from sticking to the bowl.
When it is completely mixed together, it will be smooth and golden.
Now you just want to spread the cream cheese over the top of the cake, forming a layer.
It should be about 3 inches across and the cream should be spread over the entire surface.
You want to keep it that way until you’re ready to frost the cake or you want it to be finished and ready to serve.
Once the cake is frosted, you can add in the chocolate chips and then serve immediately.
I like to make my cakes with a chocolate chip buttercream, but you can make your own if you’d like.
You do not need to serve them with the frosting on, but I do like to serve with it on the side.
It adds a bit of extra flavor and a bit to the cake that I find adds a nice texture. Enjoy!
