Milk Bar Mondays – Carrot Cake Truffles



Welcome to the very first Milk Bar Mondays!

Milk Bar Mondays is a group of blogging baking girls who work their way through the Momofuku Milk Bar Cookbook.  Every three weeks, one girl will choose a recipe and the rest of us will bake it, photograph it, and then tell all of you about it!  For opening week the lovely Audra of The Baker Chick choose Carrot Cake Truffles. 



First off let me start with saying that the Momofuku Milk Bar Cookbook is no ordinary baking book.  The recipes are completely unique, challenging, and incredibly mouth-watering.  They are unlike anything else I have ever seen.  You will see recipes like Crack Pie, Cereal Milk, and Compost Cookies – Ever heard of those before?


These Carrot Cake Truffles are not your normal truffle.  Of course they aren’t, how could they be if they are included in this book.  It’s a rich, buttery, and sugary carrot cake, combined with liquid cheesecake, rolled in white chocolate and then milk crumbs.  Yes, there are a lot of components.  Yes, it will take some time.  And yes, it is 100% incredibly worth it!

This is first recipe I made from this cookbook and I can’t wait to dive into more.  If any of the other recipes are like this one – packed with flavor and insane deliciousness – then were all in for a big treat!  Enjoy :)



For the recipe, head on over to Audra’s blog The Baker Chick.

I LOVE these girl’s blogs!  They are ones I read daily and receive inspiration from all the time.  I’m so honored and excited to be part of this wonderful Milk Bar Mondays group.
