Thunder Cake

A fabulous book about a "babushka" that makes "Thunder Cake" with her granddaughter because she is scared of thunder. It is such a beautiful story, and has beautiful pictures!

We made Thunder Cake! (Which might have been a bad idea on my part to plan this the day after we got back. We had no food in our house... well no eggs at least.)


Cream together:

1 C Shortening, 1 3/4 C Sugar,

1 teaspoon Vanilla,

and 3 eggs separated (yolks blend in and white whip until still, then fold in)

Add 1 C of cold water and 1/3 C pureed tomato

In a separate bowl mix 2 1/2 C cake flour, 1/2 C dry cocoa, 1 1/2 t baking soda, 1 t salt
From July 10

Mix well, put in a greased 8x8 pan, bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees!

There you have it!

Thunder Cake!
