RECIPE # 5132 - JACK & COLA PUDDING CAKE - Friday, FEBRUARY 14, 2014
LYNNE TOLLEY / MISS MARY BOBO's BOARDING HOUSE
1 c self-rising flour
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c chopped salted peanuts
1/2 c milk
1/4 c butter, melt and cool to room temperature
1 t vanilla
1 c cola
1/4 c whiskey
1 c brown sugar
2 T cocoa powder
Heat the oven to 350°F. Combine the flour, sugar, and peanuts in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the milk, butter, and vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Pour the batter into an ungreased 8 or 9 inch glass baking dish and set aside.
Heat the cola until almost boiling. Combine the hot cola, whiskey, sugar, and cocoa powder in a small mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth. Pour the mixture over the batter in the baking dish. Do not stir. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and set in the middle. The pudding will be bubbling up from the bottom around the edges of the cake. Remove the cake from the oven and let stand on a wire rack about 15 minutes. Serve warm in small bowls with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a generous dollop of whipped cream, spooning the warm pudding over the top.
