Pot ‘O Gold Cereal milk Cake:

  • Cereal Milk Cake:
      • A toasted oat flavoured sheet cake with deep nutty notes from the milk. You can make this into a 8″x 2″ deep cake pan too. I used Lucky charms for the cereal milk soak. You can always brush a little bit of cereal milk leftover on to the hot cake for a more intense and moist cake. 
  • Caramalised white chocolate frosting: 
      • You can find the Caramalised White Chocolate recipe and step by step instruction to make it. The caramelised white chocolate adds a whole new texture to the cake. Alternatively you can also use dark chocolate/ salted caramel or even cookie butter that is your speculoos
      • Garnish the cake with the marshmallow charms from your cereal box!
