Recipe of the Month Desserts - Peppermint Candy Cake



INGREDIENTS
  • 1 butter-flavor cake mix
  • 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream

INSTRUCTIONS
Combine all ingredients and beat with electric mixer until smooth. Pour into three greased-and-floured 9-inch cake pans and bake at 350º for 20 minutes.
Frosting:
1 cup sugar
1 cup crushed peppermint candy
1/3 cup water
teaspoon cream of tartar
Dash of salt
3 egg whites
In a saucepan, mix sugar, cup peppermint candy, water, cream of tartar, and salt; cook, covered, for three minutes. Remove cover and cook until syrup strings when spoon is dipped into it.
While syrup is cooking, beat three egg whites in a bowl. Pour hot syrup mixture into egg whites, beating constantly. When mixture will make a peak, add another cup of crushed peppermint candy; beat to mix. Spread icing between layers and on top and sides of cake.
Note: It’s better if cake “sets” one day before being served.
