Ketchup chips, yes.
Ketchup and fries, yes.
Ketchup and eggs, yes.
Ketchup and cake? NO! Oh, yes, definitely yes!
I know it’s not your average vanilla or chocolate cake, but this cake deserves attention! It is rich in spices, which will remind you of carrot cake, and rich fall flavours found in pumpkin and apple cakes.
The ketchup is not an over powering flavour in the cake. It’s almost like an after taste. Be sure to pair it with cream cheese icing!
