Grocery Challenge Recipe Swap

Yum


I am participating in the Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap and suggest you go over to take a look! This recipe came from my triplet, Tanya from Canada.

GUMDROP CAKE

Cream 1 C butter, 1 1/3 C sugar and beat til fluffy. Add 3 eggs (1 at a time) beating well after each addition. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with milk ( 1C + 4 tbsp), to which flavoring has been added. (1 tsp vanilla or lemon extract)

Dry ingredients:

3C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Dust 1 pkg of baking gums (small gumdrops) with a couple tbsp of flour. Fold into cake batter and pour into greased and floured bundt pan OR two loaf pans.

  2. That is so pretty!

    I love gumdrops but wonder how they are to cut. They must soften in the baking....

  6. That makes a beautiful cake and it has to be tastier than the fruit chunks that I thought they were. LOL!

  9. That looks very pretty, but I'm afraid that I would get a bite of green or yellow gum drop... that would bum me out:)

  10. Terri,
    Just read what you wrote on BittersweetPunkin. Good for you on reducing the debt.

    There's so much good information about cutting our budgets without reducing lifestyle values on the Internet. It's a great resource.

    My hubs was born and raised in Jeff City -- 10 years older than you though.

  14. The gumdrops are all through that cake really nicely.

    Becky K had a good question. I find that the gumdrops that are not completely covered in batter get a bit chewy during the baking, so I usually use a really good serated sp? knife, or even my electric knife for cutting.
