One word: Delicious! When we were kids, Grandma called these Torn Pants! We couldn't wait for them to be done and would be waiting at the stove for them. Our faces were white with powdered sugar....Those were the days and they can be again!
All I can say is Yummy! This cake is sponge-like, but moist. You can put almost any frosting/filling with it- Cream cheese frosting, butter cream, chocolate frosting and it all tastes wonderful. Adults as well as kids love this one. I've had this one for years.
I like this dish because it is versatile in that you can change the seasonings to alter the flavor even though the flavor in itself is wonderful. The walnuts add a great nutty flavor to the mushrooms and chicken strips. It is a filling meal. It can easily be divided for more depending on what you are serving or if it is the only meal.
I made this so many times I can't even remember where it came from anymore, so it began taking on a name of it's own. Now I just call it this. Whatever you want to call it this dessert is wonderful, beautiful, and so easy your 5 year old can make it--and NO BAKING. A party favorite for years.
This is older than the Saints I think...or at least every Great Grandma I knew made this one with their eyes closed. We just watched in amazement. It looked like parchment paper on the table and they worked wonders with it. It was delectible, flakey every time, and anything that oozed was sweet and crunchy and great to our palate. You can master it, but it is a challenge if you like that sort of thing....I know I do.
These are so handy to have on hand for those busy days or unexpected company, that is if you can hold on to them that long. I had to get them in bags before my husband made a full meal without the sauce. They can be used in sauces, wedding soup, as part of the entree with vegies, with dips, let your imagination go. I sometimes serve these with my Marinara sauce here at recipezaar. Talk about a quick meal! All I know is I didn't make enough...
