Meatloaf with smashed potatoes & cast iron sugar cake for dessert. It’s my idea of a comfort food meal! Meatloaf reminds me of my childhood. It’s definitely one of my comfort foods. I think the boiled, smashed, baked potatoes and the addition of asparagus updates this classic dinner staple. We seem to be in between seasons here, it’s either freezing or super hot so this meal fits in just perfectly right now!
I made a cast iron sugar cake for dessert. I love baking in cast iron everything cooks so beautifully and it looks pretty when you set the rustic pan on the table to servie. The cake was light and delicious, A little sweet but not too much. I served it with vanilla ice cream and strawberries. You could drizzle with chocolate sauce or dulce de leche would be fantastic.
You can find the recipe here. A great go to for simple summer dessert!
Now it’s your turn! What is your favorite comfort food?
