Vegan Fried Chicken, Mashed Potato and Cornbread Cake




Woah. Talk about next level. I'm more of a savory person so the idea of a savory cake makes me very excited. This turned out incredible!!


Ingredients

2-3 boxes of Jiffy Corn Bread mix (plus ingredients needed to make the cake)

3-4 cups of prepared Creamy Mashed Potatoes, warm NOT hot (Also best to get these very creamy. With no chunks.I used an immersion blender)

Fried Chicken, you can use nuggets or make your own recipe below

Small round cake pans (I used THESE)

Gravy

Chopped Chives



Directions

Bake 3 boxes of cornbread separately according to box instructions in 3 circular pans.

Let cool completely.

Place one cornbread in the center of a cake stand or plate.

Top with a large spoonful of mashed potatoes, smooth it evenly

Carefully top with another cornbread. Repeat until all cornbreads have been used.

Put mashed potatoes on top & around the sides of the cornbread using the offset spatula. Smooth with spatula.

Top with fried chicken

Drizzle with gravy and chopped chives

Serve and enjoy!

Heat enough oil to fully coat the chicken pieces
