THANKSGIVING CHERPUMPLE: THE TURDUCKEN OF DESSERTS by Charles Phoenix
The Cherpumple is an original recipe from the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen, and the most talked about new dessert to come along in years.
It’s a three-layer cake with a pie stuffed in each layer. YUM! Cherpumple is short for CHERry, PUMpkin and apPLE pie. The apple pie is baked in spice cake, the pumpkin in yellow and the cherry in white. I DARE YOU TO TRY IT AT HOME!
The inspiration for the Cherpumple came from the typical dessert table selection you would find at one of my family’s holiday celebrations. Seems like there’s always cherry, pumpkin and apple pies and a cake – a family tradition. The cake has a layer of spice and a layer of yellow. Since I always want to have a piece of each of the pies and the cake, I figured, why not make that waaaaaaaay more convenient?
So, I baked them all together as one, and the Cherpumple was born.
