Mardi Gras King Cake with CBD
I think it would be a lie to call my favorite King Cake actually healthy. But, I did make it HEALTHIER this year by adding Holistic Hemp Co.'s CBD infused Coconut Oil to the recipe. Mardi Gras is only a week away, and if you haven't made this yet, you need to.
Don't forget to put the special trinket inside the cake, whether it be a plastic baby or something else you fancy. Whoever finds the trinket in their slice of cake has won themselves luck, good fortune, and prosperity for the year to come, according to tradition. All the good fortune that person gains means they are responsible for the next year's Mardi Gras party and King Cake baking. So, good luck!
And remember, this cake is meant for sharing so bring it to work, share it with your family, and enjoy some time with your friends!
Ingredients for CBD - King Cake
1 roll frozen bread dough, fully thawed
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon lemon extract
Directions for CBD- King Cake
- Roll out the dough into a rectangle shape on a floured surface, to prevent sticking.
- Next, mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar and lemon extract. Blend well.
- Spread the mixture over the dough, leaving about 1 in on all sides uncovered.
- Roll the dough up lengthwise into what looks like a long log. Brush the end, aka the final part of the roll, with a bit of water and firmly press into the rest of the roll. That water will help the dough stick and seal to itself.
- Reshape the roll into a ring, joining the ends together after brushing with a little water.
- Lightly spray the top of the roll with cooking spray. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to stand in a warm place for 1 hour.
- Remove plastic wrap, place on pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
