Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have mini fluted tube cake pans, you can make one large cake. Use a 12-cup fluted tube cake pan and increase the baking time by about 30 minutes, but still use a toothpick to check when it’s done.
  • Garnish the cakes with chopped nuts to add extra flavor and texture.
  • The sauce can be made ahead of time and then simply reheat it prior to serving.
