I’ve always wanted to make Truvy’s “Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa Cake” from Steel Magnolias. And yesterday evening we understood my fantasy.
We won’t also explain to you the method shots, because there tend to be extremely little procedure shots. The cake is painfully, ridiculously, unabashedly very easy to toss together.
To paraphrase Truvy, it's a cuppa flour, a cuppa sugar, a cuppa good fresh fruit cocktail utilizing the liquid. Mix it and bake it till brown and bubbly. Provide it with ice cream to slice the sweetness.
Used to do exactly what Truvy said. I mixed flour (self-rising), sugar, and fruit cocktail. (Note: I moved ahead and used an entire might of good fresh fruit beverage, as I truly believed the dessert can use the moisture.) We baked it till brown and bubbly. Observe that the initial dish (additionally the one I list below) calls for baking the dessert in a square cooking pan. But I made a decision to double it making a larger dessert yesterday. It’s the kinda girl i will be.
After sampling exactly how wealthy it is, but I won’t be doubling it the next time.
Assist me, Rhonda.
Information it out…
Plop it on a plate…
Then–and that is really, really important–whip up some hefty lotion without sweetening it. Only keep it pure and holy. After tasting somewhat bite of finished dessert, I understood offering it with frozen dessert could be sweetness overload–the dessert itself is practically too sweet alone.
Plop a large quantity of sugarless whipped lotion above.
The verdict? It was really yummy. Warm, uncomplicated…definitely underneath the “comfort meals” umbrella. Undoubtedly regarding the sticky side. I did like to taste some salt; I’ll probably throw some when you look at the flour blend the next occasion. The unsweetened whipped ointment truly did grow to be a vital the main experience; it changed the taste of this dessert if you take away that cloying sweetness that usually helps it be “too much.”
And it also took exactly ninety seconds to get it inside oven. For that reason alone, it's a cake to keep inside repertoire.
God-bless you, Truvy. Are you going to come do my tresses?
