Sweet Potato Cake Recipe
Will this be profitable? What do you think?
I live in Houston TX and want to start a small catering business from my home. I want to sell cakes, cookies, brownies, and pies……is there a market for this?
My recipes are pretty good and I love baking. I wont be selling plain old cookies, I will be selling gourmet cookies from my recipe and fresh pies…like sweet potato pie (not from the can!) and other stuff….what do you guys think?
As I live in Australia I can’t give you an opinion on the market for such yummy stuff in Houston… However, I have also considered getting into a small Birthday Cake or flavoured breads business – best check out the local rules and regulations on Food Preparation areas in Houston… they’re very strict over here, so much so that you would really need to do your market research before investing in the kitchen make-over and equipment you’d need (glazed ceramic tiles floor to ceiling for a start for example)… Apart from that your recipes sound great – All the very best with it.
A recipe for “regalos” (pan dulce)?
I’m looking for a recipe for a type of pan dulce my mom calls a “regalo” (a gift). It may be known as something else, because pan dulce often has different names. It looks like a square cake with a pumpkin filling…it looks like they just split the cake and put a layer of pumpkin or sweet potato filling in the middle…but it may have been poured in and covered with another layer before it was baked, I don’t know how it’s made. The bread is crumbly. It’s kind of thick and dense. It’s always cut in square bars. I’ve been looking for recipes in english or spanish and haven’t had any luck…I think this type of pan dulce may be commonly known by another name.
