COLOMBIAN FRESH BANANA CAKE WITH SEA FOAM FROSTING COCA-COLA

1 servings

1 package yellow cake mix, (18.5 oz)**
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
3/4 cup cola, (COCA-COLA)
1 cup ripe banana, mashed
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/3 cup nuts, finely chopped (opt)
SEA FOAM FROSTING
2 egg whites
1 1/2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar, *
1/3 cup cola, (COCA-COLA)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 dash salt

** Do not use a mix with pudding added or which requires oil. *You may substitute 1 tablespoon corn syrup.

TO MAKE THE CAKE: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, baking soda, and eggs. Measure the Coca-Cola, stir briskly until the foaming stops; add to the batter. Blend ingredients just until moistened, then beat at high speed of an electric mixer for 3 minutes, scraping the bowl often.

In a bowl, combine the mashed bananas with the lemon juice; add to the batter. Add the chopped nuts to the batter and beat for 1 minute at medium speed. Turn the batter into a well-greased, lightly floured, 13x9x2-inch pan.

Bake in a preheated, 350 degree F oven for about 40 minutes or until the cake tests done. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes, remove cake from pan and turn right-side up on a rack to finish cooling.

TO MAKE THE SEA FOAM FROSTING: In the top of a double boiler, combine all the ingredients except the vanilla extract. Beat 1 minute at high speed of an electric mixer. Place over boiling water (the water should not touch the bottom of the top half of the double boiler.). Beat on high speed about 7 minutes until the frosting forms peaks when the mixer is raised.

Remove from boiling water (for the smoothest frosting, empty into a large bowl). Add the vanilla extract and continue beating on high speed until thick enough to spread, about 2 minutes. Spread on the sides and top of the cold banana cake.

DEVIL'S FOOD WITH FUDGE FROSTING

8 servings

CAKE
1 3/4 cups cake flour, Sifted
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, (not a mix)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup boiling water
FROSTING
1/4 cup unsalted butter
2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 ounces melted unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons half and half, or milk or evaporated milk


PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 350F. Grease 2 8-inch layer cake pans well, then dust them generously with cocoa. (This gives the cake layers a rich brown finish). Sift the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt onto a piece of waxed paper and set it aside. Cream the butter until it is fluffy, add the sugar and vanilla, and continue beating until the batter is silvery and light. Beat the eggs in one by one, then add the sifted dry ingredients, alternately with the boiling water, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients and beating well after each addition. Divide the batter equally between the two pans, smoothing the tops. Bake the layers uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the layers feel spongy to the touch and begin to pull away from the sides of the pans. Cool the layers upright in their pans on wire racks for 10 minutes, then carefully loosen them around the edges with a spatula and turn them onto wire racks. Cool them completely. FOR THE FROSTING: Cream the butter until it is light, then add the confectioners' sugar gradually, beating all the while. Beat in the melted chocolate and vanilla, then add just enough cream to make the frosting a good consistency for spreading. Sandwich the two cake layers together with frosting, then frost the top and sides of the cake. Swirl the frosting into peaks and valleys.

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon lemon rind, Grated
1 tablespoon lime rind, Grated

2 tablespoons maraschino cherries, Juice
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

FROSTING: Mix all ingredients except cherries and beat constantly while heating in the top of a double boiler. When thoroughly mixed, thick, and spreadable, frost cake. Decorate top of cake with chopped maraschino cherries. NOTE: Since Fresca is available only in limited areas if at all, 7-up may be a good substitution, or any lemon-lime drink. Also, since the problem with the cherries has been resolved with a different food coloring, you may use the new ones or use gum drops instead for the garnish. Syrup from a can of dark cherries might be substituted for the Maraschino cherry syrup.

GATEAUX JOS LOUIS (JOE LOUIS CAKES)

1 servings

CAKE
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 beaten eggs
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
VANILLA FILLING
2 egg whites
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 pinch salt
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla
CHOCOLATE ICING
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 to 2 tablespoons light cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup icing sugar, (Confectioner's)


Home-made versions of this best selling commercial snacking cake turn up in recipe collections throughout the Beauce. A product of the giant Vachon bakery at St. Marie, it was launched by founder-bakers Arcade and Rose-Anna Vachon who named it for their eldest two sons Joseph and Louis and not, as some believe , after the heavyweight boxing champion, Joe Louis. Home recipes use a drop-cookie method and -sometimes- a marshmallow filling. The baking cake is made automatically with a diameter of 3 1/2 inches (9 cm). To achieve a symmetrical look and a light texture, I adapted a recipe belonging to Mariette Scully Bourque of Notre Dame des Pins to the muffin tin.

CAKE: Grease 12 medium muffin tins or 24 small ones. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. Measure milk into a 1 cup measure and stir in vinegar, then baking soda. In another bowl, sift or mix together flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. Combine dry ingredients with butter mixture with milk; stir in vanilla. Fill prepared muffin tins half full of batter. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 10 minutes or until a tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pan. Turn out onto rack and cool completely.

VANILLA FILLING: In top of a double boiler, set over boiling water, combine egg whites, granulated sugar, salt and water. With an electric mixer, beat until stiff and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and beat in vanilla.

CHOCOLATE ICING: Cream soft butter with cocoa powder. Blend in cream and vanilla. Stir in sifted icing (confectioner's) sugar until icing is of spreading consistency.

Slice cakes in half horizontally. Fill with Vanilla Filling and spread tops and sides with Chocolate Icing.

GEORGIA PEACHES AND CREAM CAKE

8 servings

FILLING
2 pounds ripe peaches, peeled
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon quick cooking tapioca
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
CRUMB TOPPING
1/2 cup unbleached flour
6 tablespoons light brown sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
CAKE
6 tablespoons sour cream
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, Pure
3/4 cup unbleached flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

PREHEAT OVEN TO 375F 15 minutes before baking, with the rack in the center of the oven. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan, preferably glass. Cut the peaches into 1/2-inch slices. Put in a pan with sugar, lemon juice, tapioca and nutmeg and toss gently. Cook over high heat until syrup begins to bubble, about 4 minutes. Set aside.
FOR THE TOPPING: Work the flour into the sugar, butter and cinnamon until the butter is the size of small peas. This can be done with a food processor or pastry blender. Set aside.
FOR THE CAKE: Stir the sour cream and baking soda together and let stand while you begin the cake. Cream the egg, sugar and butter in the processor or with a mixer until it is light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and sour cream and mix well. Gently fold in the flour, baking powder and salt. In the processor, do this by pulsing the machine on and off several times. Spread the warm peaches and their juice in the bottom of the baking pan. Spoon the batter over the peaches and spread in a thin, even layer with a rubber spatula. It's OK if the peaches are not completely covered. Sprinkle the topping over the batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake--not the fruit--comes out clean, 25-to-28 minutes.
