TWD Caramel Peanut Topped Brownie Cake

Today is my first Tuesdays with Dorie post. Tammy from Wee Treats by Tammy chose this week's selection. Be sure to check out her website @ http://www.weetreatsbytammy.blogspot.com/. I had a great time adapting this recipe to fit our family's personality. Tomorrow is our baby girl's 6th birthday and I thought it would be fun to have individual sized cakes instead of one large cake. I've also been dying to use my new Wilton pan, so this fit both wishes perfectly.
I didn't use the peanuts called for in the original recipe because of allergies and after reading many posts about the caramel topping burning easily, I chose to top my cakes with a white chocolate glaze. This also made these perfect for our birthday celebration.

This cake was so simple to put together. I didn't even have to get my Kitchen-Aid mixer dirty for this one, everything is whisked together by hand. Couldn't get any easier. I filled the pans a little too full and had cake everywhere on the pan, so the kids had tidbits of cake to munch on while I glazed the cakes. Personally, I didn't taste the cake, but the kids all gave it a huge thumbs up. Thanks Tammy for choosing this fun recipe.

Welcome to TWD! Glad these worked out for you. They did rise a lot, didn't they? I love your mini-bundt cakes with the white glaze.
