Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa Cake
For last Sunday's dessert I decided to try out making the famous Steel Magnolia's recipe recited by Truvy...Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa:
"It's a cuppa flour, a cuppa sugar, a cuppa fruit cocktail with the juice, mix and bake 'til gold and bubbly."
"Sounds awfully rich."
"It is, so I serve it with ice cream to cut the sweetness."
The results: I thought it was god awful but that fam of mine...they actually liked it. I'm starting to believe that they will eat anything and like it. I found it to be kinda...chewy. I did serve it with ice cream as well. (And Jen, I know how much you love this movie also! I thought about you while I was making this dessert!)
My mom and I love Steel Magnolias, it's kinda 'our movie'... she even made me an armadillo cake complete with the mysterious grey icing and red velvet cake innards. I couldn't believe how many people didn't get it!
ah well....anyway, here's a funny quote from the movie for you to enjoy:
Ouiser: I don't see plays, 'cause I can nap at home for free. And I don't see movies 'cause they're trash, and they ain't got nothin' but naked people in 'em! And I don't read books, 'cause if they're any good they're gonna make 'em into a miniseries.
