cuppa cuppa cuppa

Is this actually a valid recipe?

Well, it better be -- I found it in the "freezes beautifully" section of my cookbook!

It doesn't make very much. Maybe a portion for 2.

I’ve always wanted to make Truvy’s “Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa Cake” from Steel Magnolias. And last night I realized my dream.

I won’t even show you the process shots, because there are hardly any process shots. The cake is painfully, ridiculously, unabashedly easy to throw together.

To paraphrase Truvy, it’s a cuppa flour, a cuppa sugar, a cuppa fruit cocktail with the juice. Mix it and bake it till brown and bubbly. Serve it with ice cream to cut the sweetness.

I did what Truvy said. I mixed flour (self-rising), sugar, and fruit cocktail. (Note: I went ahead and used a whole can of fruit cocktail, as I really thought the cake could use the moisture.) I baked it till brown and bubbly. Note that the original recipe (and the one I list below) calls for baking the cake in a square pan. But I decided to double it and make a larger cake last night. It’s the kinda gal I am. The verdict? It was really yummy. Warm, uncomplicated…definitely under the “comfort food” umbrella. Definitely on the sticky side. I did want to taste a little salt; I’ll probably toss a little in the flour mixture next time. The unsweetened whipped cream really did turn out to be a vital part of the experience; it changed the flavor of the cake by taking away that cloying sweetness that otherwise makes it “too much.”

And it took exactly ninety seconds to get it in the oven. For that reason alone, it’s a cake to keep in your repertoire.

It goes further if you serve it with vanilla ice cream. It also cuts the sweet.
