Something Swanky

Something Swanky
  • Yield: servings


1 box of Donsuemor Cute Cakes
1 unbaked pie crust (store bought or homemade)
1/2cup butter (softened)
1/2cup sugar
3 eggs
1tablespoon almond flour (cornmeal can be substituted)
1tablespoon vinegar
1teaspoon vanilla
2cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2cups heavy whipping cream


  1. Press pie crust into a deep pie dish (a cute dish is highly recommended).
  2. Cut each Cute Cake into quarters and place in pie crust.
  3. In a stand mixer, whisk together the butter, sugar, eggs, almond flour, vinegar, and vanilla. {It’s not going to look all pretty and creamy, so don’t worry if you think yours looks wrong!}
  4. Pour over the cute cakes and gently incorporate with a rubber spatula.
  5. Let rest for at least an hour in the fridge (I left mine in over night, so longer is okay too).
  6. Bake at 350º for 30-40 minutes until golden brown (it should smell wonderful).
  7. Put the chocolate chips in a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Pour in heavy cream, just level with the chips (if you don’t use it all, that’s ok). Microwave for 1 minute, and whisk until smooth.
  8. Let the ganache cool slightly (about 5 minutes). Pour and gently spread the ganache over the pie.
