JACK’S EVERYTHING CAKE
I call this my “everything cake” because I put EVERYTHING in it I can find on that day. I like to cook for my family, but I don’t make, like chicken and stuff…only cakes. They eat some pretty much every time, and sometimes they even like it. This one is my “Apple Everything Cake” cause I put a few pieces of apple in there. My family didn’t eat this one because it tasted gross, but some taste good.
– 1 egg
– 1 granola bar
– 1 cup ginger dressing (my mom made for a salad)
– 2 scoops oatmeal
– 1 package of Swedish Fish
– 2 glasses of water
– 1 squirt of honey
– 2 dumps of cinnamon (my mom says it was about 10 teaspoons)
I do this part all by myself and mix it together for a long time and stuff. Then my mom has to put it in the oven, cause it’s hot and she says I might spill it.
When it’s all done, I taste it.
It really tasted nasty. I think next time, I will add salt and flour. It might taste better.
Nanny’s Note: Thank you, Jack, for this incredibly unique dessert recipe. I will keep it in mind for my next dinner party. I find it fascinating, however, that there are no apples in your “Apple Everything Cake” recipe. I must assume they are optional…good thinking! Jack’s mom reports that he was “disappointed, but not defeated.” I would love to receive an update, with a photo of the entire family tasting one of Jack’s culinary masterpieces. What a cute kid!
Hi, Nanny. Jack here. I have something to say about your blog. And about your blog. Thank you for putting me in it. Next time I will teach you how to make a spider web with tape.
That sounds great, Jack…As long as I don’t have to taste it! I love your post and your pictures.
I think the Swedish fish did it. Maybe try marshmallows next time.
You are probably right, Jonathan. Marshmallows would make a great addition to this recipe. Thanks for the comment.
I found the recipie for apple cake very interesting And colorful. Keep trying to make new creative recipes and you will one day be a famous chef like Nanny’s Father. ;-))
Adorable! This is how all great chefs get their start – trial and error. Keep it up Jack!
Hey Jack, I an Nanny Kenly’s Dad and a chef like you, but I bake bread from around the World. A lot of my recipes are just like yours, whatever I can find in my kitchen. Many times my bread is so bad that I have to throw it away, then I laaugh at myself and do it all over again until I get it right. I hope the day comes when you and I can bake together and show peoplw really great baked goods.
Hey Jack, I am Nanny Kenly’s Dad, A chef just like you, and a chef who has failed more times in my life than I can remember. Failing at cooking is how I learned to cook, failing at something gives me the courage to keep trying until I get it right. I did like the idea of using Swedish fish in your cake, it shows me that you are not afraid to use your imagination. I hope the day comes when we can bake together
