Unique Snack Cakes: Chocoflan Grits Cake with Amanda Levy

Date: Sunday, September 11, 2022

Time: 12pm - 3pm

Cost: $90

Amanda Levy, head of pastry at neighboring Abby Jane Bakeshop, is taking a (short) trip over to the mill to teach YOU how to make Chocoflan with a corny twist! In this class, not only will you get a chance to work closely with our flours under the tutelage of a professional baker & pastry chef, but you will also learn a unique sweet application of our stone-milled grits!

Chocoflan is a best-of-both-worlds type of dessert - you get a foundation of rich, chocolatey cake, topped with a delightfully smooth and decadent custard. On top of all that, you have a silky caramel - what more could you ask for? Amanda's addition of grits to the flan custard adds layers of flavor and texture nuance that make this little snack cake pretty unforgettable - our corn famously adds nutty, earthy, and toasty notes to any application, and this cake is no exception! Chocoflan is the perfect celebratory or anytime dessert - make it for entertaining a crowd, make it for your grandma's birthday, or make it for just hanging out at home all weekend. 

We hope you come to this class to learn more about snack cakes from Amanda, and to learn more about the versatility of our corn and flour offerings!

Beginners are welcome, and encouraged to attend, though this class does include some intermediate level technique 😉.

First time rye user

Nothing to compare to but this worked very well. Used King Arthur recipe that included pickle juice. Won’t do that again. Pickle flavor dominated. Looking forward to next attempt at rye sandwich bread

Quality of Excellence!

Hello to whom it may concern,

Thank you for all your extremely hard work and amazing product! I will be looking forward to using your flour again for my future pizza business, Pablo's Square Pizza! My pizza dough tasted better than before. The rouge de bordeaux and tam 105 gave it that nice natural, hearty, and earthiness flavor. I was wondering, but do you sell either one of them in bulk 50 lb bags? Thank you and hear from you soon.
