This cake is buttery delicious, it has a cream cheese layer in the middle and topped with a crumb topping, I always double the topping! You can also bake this cake in an 11 x 7-inch baking pan --- top baked cake with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if desired :)
I love Rhubarb Cake. Caramel and orange juice make this one special. During rhubarb season we make this cake frequently.Cooking time does not include chilling time. You can bake the bottom and cook the rhubarb the night before. Make glaze and fill cake in the morning.- NOTE: it is advantageous to have a special form for the bottom, but if you us a simple round form, use a metal ring around the baked cake when you fill it. Remove carefully when filling has set.
I originally submitted this without trying it, as it was in response to a request. I finally got around to trying it last week, and realized there was a mistake, as the ingredients in the cake part should have read: 8 tablespoons butter, melted. Also, you can't "pour" the cake into the pan it has to be patted into the pan like a pie crust. Anyway, here is the revised version. I also cut down on the sugar, using about 12 ounces or 3/4 of the box. This is awesome-a Paula Deen classic!
I have no idea where the name "Japanese Fruit Cake" originated from but this is very North American. A bit of trouble & expensive to make but your family & guests will rave over the taste for it is nothing like the traditional fruit cake usually served at Christmas time. It has been in our family for years & a holiday tradition for as long as I can remember. Serve small portions as it is very rich.
If you like lemon, you're going to love this cake! Saw this recipe being made by the Barefoot Contessa on FoodTV and just had to have it. Not being overly experienced, I was a bit intimidated by the recipe. However, it is not very hard, looks great and the taste is incredible! Cook time does not include time for the cakes to cool.
This is the consummate cheesecake. You won't want any other's after you've had this one. I like to take my ingredients out on Friday morning before work and bake it Friday night when it's cool and quiet. That way it's ready to serve early Saturday.
****Please Note: The texture of this confection is more like mochi and not very much like cake.**** Another recipe from a friend...this is really a different an and mochi combination. The an is mixed right into the mochiko and it makes for a really nice flavor. The texture is really gooey, just like mochi should be!
