Ingredients

  • 3 Cups cubed wedding cake, frosting removed
  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 Cup flour

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the cubed cake a few times until finely crumbled. Reserve 1 ½ cups and reserve the rest for later use.

Combine the butter, sugars, egg, extract, and salt until well combined. In another bowl, combine the baking soda, flour, and cake crumbs. Combine and chill the dough, then scoop out onto a silicone or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in  for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. 

Cake Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cake Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
