Watermelon cake is an idea of a cake rather than a recipe. There are several interpretations of cake-in-the-guise-of-a-melon in American cookbooks from the 1870’s to 1930’s, and surely it is a fun idea worth re-discovering. T.W.Barritt over at Culinary Types has done just that in his latest Retro Cake Challenge. Do go over and drool, it looks gorgeous.
Quotation of the Day …
Mark Twain said: “The true Southern watermelon is a boon apart, and not to be mentioned with commoner things. It is chief of this world's luxuries, king by the grace of God over all the fruits of the earth. When one has tasted it, he knows what the angels eat. It was not a Southern watermelon that Eve took; we know it because she repented.”
