Puertorican almond soak...my friends call it Mojaito Cake

MY SOAKING RECIPE:
3 CUPS OF WATER
1 1/2 CUPS OF GRANULATED SUGAR
*DESOLVE SUGAR IN WATER**
3/4 CUP OF PINEAPPLE JUICE (I USE THE JUICE IN THE SLICED PINEAPPLES)
3 TSP OF ALMOND (OR VANILLA) EXTRACT
1 CINNAMON STICK
BOIL ON HIGH THEN SIMMER ON LOW FOR 15 MINUTES
COOL AND POUR EVENLY OVER CAKES TO SOAK OR MOISTEN/ ADD FLAVOR

AFTER I SOAK EM I USUALLY PUT THEM IN THE FREEZER FOR ABOUT HALF AN HOUR (NOT TO FREEZE BUT TO MAKE FIRM SO I CAN FROST :) HOPE U LIKIE!!!

THIS IS THE CAKE I GET THE MOST ORDERS FOR! ITS REGULAR BUTTER YELLOW CAKE SOAKED IN THIS…SIMPLE AND YUMMY! FOR FILLINGS I USUALLY USE THE STRAWBERRY OR THE PINEAPPLE (BUT MAINLY STRAWBERRY) :)

FOR THE STRAWBERRY FILLING I BUY THE BAGS OF WHOLE FROZEN STRAWBERRIES…THAW THEM AND THEN MASH THEM WITH MY POTATO SMASHER

FOR THE PINEAPPLE I USED CANNED CRUSHED PINEPAPPLE

TRY ONE SO U SEE HOW YUM YUM YUMMY IT IS! :)

Norma ...

Sounds good! Would you share the butter cake recipe?

Monsi Torres ...

I love to decorate, not so much bake, so I use good ol’ duncan hines, betty crocker, or pillsbury! lol Whatever I happen to have on hand. I add 1 tsp of almond extract to the batter and the soak does the rest!

Joyce Nimmo ...

I’ve never done a soak before. You pour all of that on the cake? How big is the cake?

Monsi Torres ...

Joys, Depends on the taste of the person…a 6" will get about a quarter cup, an 8" gets a half cup, a 10 inch gets about a cup etc…when i do Mojaito cupcakes, i cut a thin layer off the top and pour 1 TBS on each cupcake…if its for my friend that likes them super soaked they get 2 TBS! i frost the cupcakes right away and they go straight into the fridge. If im soaking a cake they go into the freezer for about 10-15 minutes to begin to firm up so i can crumb coat.

Ciccio ...
