TWD - Sunday in Paris Cake


Happy Valentines Day!  For the Valentines edition of Tuesdays with Dorie, I have chosen to make Sunday in Paris Cake - and why not.  It's a little like a Snickers without the caramel - chocolate, peanuts, peanut butter, more chocolate - hey. what's not to love.


Assuming that your beloved likes their chocolate not too sweet, then this cake could be the perfect treat to capture their heart this Valentines Day:


Personally, I really liked this cake.  It wasn't overly sweet, which was a huge plus for me, and of course I am a fan of chocolate.  It wasn't a moist cake, but nor was it dry and crumbly.

To see what baking love the other Dorie bakers made this week, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

Perfect cake for anyone on Valentine's Day, and not too sweet sounds great! It sounds delicious! Happy Valentine's Day!

hope you have a nice valentine's day - your cake looks marvellous - I am sure you could drizzle caramel over the top and call it snickers cake but I like the sound of it not being too sweet and caramel would take it over the top!

This cake looks gorgeous! Perfect for Valentines Day! :D I don't like overly sweet cakes too.

I loved this cake - especially how it's not too sweet! I need to make the peanut version next!

Your cake turned out beautifully. I enjoyed it too because it wasn't too sweet.

This looks very appropriate for Valentine's Day - or any day, really! What a great cake.

I like the Snickers comparison-just think what the cake would be like if it was served with a drizzle of caramel!

Glad you loved this one too. I may have to try it in loaf pan next time.
