Orange Jello Poke Cake with "Cloud" Frosting

The soup is a new recipe that I'll be trying and I'm going to make a few changes to the recipe. I will add some smoked sausage to it instead of ham. I'm not sure yet if I'll make the pancakes/waffles on Tuesday. It will depend on how many leftovers there are on hand. I thought I'd try Kent's Jello Poke Cake recipe with orange Jello this time and with a different frosting. I thought I'd try using the "Cloud" recipe as frosting and see what happens.

I don't make my Ham Quiche quite the same as the recipe that I linked to. I usually make it with about 8 ounces of ham, 8 ounces of cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of heavy cream and about 4 eggs. Oh, and a squirt of Dijon mustard. I suppose I should add it as a new recipe on my site but I just now realized that it wasn't there.

I don't have any blanched almond flour on hand so I might either use unblanched, which will make a very ugly cake, or splurge on some blanched almond flour from Walmart. We'll see about that because a bag of Bob's Red Mill almond flour would use about 1/5 of my weekly grocery budget. Maybe I should order a large bag of it from Honeyville. Now that Jerry is eating low carb, I'll probably be making more muffins and that kind of thing for him.

  1. Almond flour is SO expensive unfortunately. I am going to try using Soy flour.. not really a fan of anything soy but it's worth a shot because of the price.

    1. I've heard that soy flour tastes really bad.

  3. I made the sloppy Joe stuffed green peppers last night for me and my boyfriend. Neither of us are big fans of green peppers but I remember when my mom made them they added a lot of flavor to the filling. Also I have digestion issues with them. But surprise! We both ate the filling and peppers. And it was delicious and I had no heartburn or indigestion from the peppers at all! Must have been the blanching and baking, or else my gut is healing.

    Also I am making your strawberry poke cake for my dad for father's day so I can have cake too for once! :-)

    1. Maybe you're right about cooking the peppers. I'm surprised that you tried them considering your past experience with green peppers. I guess our bodies can change and adapt over time. One reason why I love making stuffed peppers is then I don't have to come up with some sort of buns for the sloppy joes.
