Ketchup in cake? You bet your sweet condiment
(NC) – Canadians have a new reason to be passionate about their ketchup. With one third of our ketchup consumption already coming from recipes, Heinz has kicked things up a notch by introducing an ingenious new recipe. Ketchup lovers can now enjoy a perfectly spiced, unexpectedly red and totally delicious cake that tastes like carrot cake without all the work.
Called the Great Canadian Heinz Ketchup Cake, the recipe was developed as a way to thank Canadians for their support as the company celebrates its 100th anniversary in Canada. The cake is easy to make and uses everyday ingredients that can be found in your fridge or pantry.
‘We all think of ketchup as the perfect complement to hotdogs, hamburgers and fries, but its unique taste makes it an ideal flavour enhancer for many recipes including desserts,’ explains Amy Snider, PHEc. and Culinary Nutritionist., ‘Heinz Ketchup not only adds great flavour to the cake, but it also creates a wonderfully moist texture.’
With Canadians being the second highest per capita users of ketchup in the world, this gorgeously red dessert is sure to grace the tables of cake and ketchup lovers from coast to coast to coast during this special anniversary year.
