I am new to cake baking... I made a Chocolate Blackout Cake that has egg and milk in the filling. I didn't refrigerate after completing the cake. It was kept cool, but not cold. Is it ok to serve??
AWhat's the filling recipe
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
I just replied with the recipe... it's being held for moderation bc I'm new to the site. I forgot to add that the recipe didn't say to refrigerate until serving, or refrigerate any leftovers, so I didn't even think about it until just now. I'm serving to co-workers today... it's cold now, but want to be sure the filling didn't spoil over the past day and a half.
The recipe is...
1 C whole milk
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/3 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 oz finely chopped semi-sweet chocolate
*Edited to remove mixing instructions.
AI can't see that there's enough sugar to preserve the filling. IMO, it needed to be refrigerated.
Live and learn... thanks for your input!
