That sounds amazing. You out did yourself bedlam.
I'm going to print this up so that I can keep this one around.
I gotta ask where did this recipe come from?

CJ, we've been making this thing since I can remember. Traditionally, it's been me since I sort of ended up being the breakfast and dessert guy amongst the brothers. When you hit 12 in our family, you assumed some part of the cooking function, Mom and Dad did very little cooking or cleaning. We rotated between KP, prep, meal planning and cooking. I'm way better with baking and dairy than veggies.

The original recipe called for clabber as an ingredient. I've never seen the original recipe. There was a hand copy of wherever the original came from that had yellowed and fallen nearly to bits that Mom brought along when she married Dad, I do the thing from memory these days. The title was "Cajun Chocolate Cake", what's cajun about it I couldn't say. Maybe great granddad knifed a chef in New Orleans and stole it.

eta:

There actually IS a Cajun cake recipe I do called a "dump cake" which is much better than it sounds, but this is not a dump cake.

Thank you, each and every one who contributed to this thread.
I'm not alone but had a few minutes to relax and was drawn to it by the Christmas Poem thread.
I've got tears rolling down my cheeks from laughing so hard and from reading some of the sad posts.
I've been feeling a bit gloomy because an accident recently put me on crutches and radically altered our Christmas plans. If laughter is the best medicine I'm well on my way to recovery!
Thanks and a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

ETA: About that peppermint "shine"; thanks for reminding me. That was one of my grandfather's standard remedies for cough or toothache.
My homebrew for this year is a cranberry/clementine cordial. Grind 2 cups fresh cranberries and 2 clementines in a blender with 2 cups of your chosen spirits (I used vodka because it's waaaay cheaper than 'shine in our area.) Add in some sugar, some people say a cup. I used agave nectar, about 3/4 cup. Pour the mix into a jar and put it in the pantry for at least a month. Strain through cheese cloth and enjoy!

Ya we had a decent amount of kinds in our house and we all divied up responsibilities . My sis is actually the baker in our family . I'm actually better with meat and veggies , but took onto to experimenting with baking. At first it wasnt very pretty.... I had alot of failed experiments.

My mom taught us how to cook with out recipes , however if you dont understand baking the chemistry can get screwed up fairly easy. So when it came to baking I started out with recipes so I eased into baking.
But this sounds amazing I cant wait to try and make this.

When the family ask me what kind of cake this is at the next function I'll tell them its Bedlam cake.

It is a lot of trouble to do but it is seriously over the top good. You cannot eat it alone. You will die from calories if you try.

Okay how about "Body Chalk" - is that better?

*blocks cookie and adds it to carb restricted list*

Here's your cookie back with "interest" and a glass of milk to dip it in.

Thanks for sharing your artwork with us. That's a whole lot more special that a picture somebody grabs off the web and posts.

You have to make it at least once. It is easily the best chocolate cake I have ever had, but it is so rich it's mind numbing.
