I'm looking for a cake recipe I've heard of that contains canned (a tub) of frosting as an ingredient. I can't remember if you frost the cake too or not. Anyone ever hear of it? I'd love to try the recipe!!
RE: My first Crawling Cake Posted by: cajunlady2 Posted on: 2/7/2004 8:32:44 PM #R3009004 look for icing in the cake That is where I found the recipe.Icing in the Cake1 box cake mix your choice4 eggs1 c. milk3/4 c. oil1 can frosting, saving some for drizzle if you like. I saved about a fifth of a can.Mix together cake mix, eggs, milk, and oil. Mix by HAND until well blended. Add frosting and mix until well blended.Put in to a well greased (I use Bakers Joy) 12 cup bundt/angel food pan and bake at 350° for 1 hour or until done. Cool for about 10 minute then turn out on to plate.Some combinations that have been tried are: Strawberry cake/coconut frosting, spicecake/caramel frosting, carrot cake/cream cheese frosting, chocolate cake/coconut pecan frosting. The list goes on and on, but try whatever you think will be good.It's been renamed crawling cake because if mixed with mixer it will crawl out of the pan while baking, and flow all over the oven
Here is John's version. Check out his thread, complete with picture.~~Vicki==================================http://community.tasteofhome.com/forums/t/12035.aspx?PageIndex=1To get a little more viewers I started this post instead of putting them on the original one.This was made using a DH Banana Supreme Cake mix and DH Dark Chocolate Fudge Frosting.1 cup milk3/4 cup oil4 eggsAll hand stirred and baked at 350º for 55 minutes. I only used 2/3 of the can of frosting in the mix and nuked the rest and drizzled it over the top. Then I BAMMED! it with powdered sugar.John
This cake was the "hit" of the BB a few years ago and many people tried it and reviewed their combos. I never had one "crawl" and I have mixed it with a mixer. I also rarely use the whole tub but save enough icing out to warm slightly (in the microwave) and pour over the baked cake as a glaze. It is a good cake but I like many of our other "enhanced" cake mix cakes better. A lot of sugar in that icing!!!!
Thank you so much for your help, Vickie!! Now I need to try it - John's did look gooey & good!!
Leave it to another MI person to have the answer I was after!!
probably not for my diabetic mom, eh?
You're welcome. ~~Vicki
