GET OUT! You're hosting?!!!!! Tell me it's so Great Carnack.
You betcha. How's that for street creds?
Whoa. I'm impressed, 'nuff said. I did just hear that Mitt won Wyoming.
Are you serving unpalatable lemonade and crackers?Or are you serving up bundt cake?
1796 - Amelia Simmons published a recipe for this cake in her cookbook American Cookery, 2nd Edition, in 1796: Election cake - Thirty quarts of flour, 10 pound butter, 14 pound sugar, 12 pound raisins, 3 doz eggs, one pint wine, one quart brandy, 4 ounces cinnamon, 4 ounces fine colander seed, 3 ounces ground alspice; wet flour with milk to the consistence of bread over night, adding one quart yeast; the next morning work the butter and sugar together for half an hour, which will render the cake much lighter and whiter; when it has rise light work in every other ingredient except the plumbs, which work in when going into the oven.Whaddya think? Maybe I'll save that for the actual election. I'll have to invent something and call it "caucus cake". I think I'll make it in a bundt pan.
I think that a potted plant might look nice in the middle. I think that branching off on your own might be a good idea. 30 quarts of flour is just excessive. Now, cooking with that much alcohol, that is totally up to you.
I might get into some trouble with the alcohol content. I do think it explains a few things about early United States politics.
