Grocery Challenge Recipe Swap

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.


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.

  1. Such a pretty cake and what could be more Christmas than gum drops!

  2. That is so pretty!

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


  3. This looks like a recipe kids would love. Thanks.

  4. Oh yum, that looks so good! I've never made a gum drop cake so thank you so much for sharing the recipe. xoxo

  5. Oh Terri...that looks yummy..if I made that I would probably be the only one to eat it so I better not...

    Hugs to you
    I hope you have a great weekend!


  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:)
    Congrats on the 4lbs! You go, girl!!

  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.

  11. Interesting recipe.

    I hope you're enjoying the Holidays. BTW, I posted how my Mom and I made our cinnamon stick Santas. Stop by and see when you can.

    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.
