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 😉.
