Friday Nostalgia


Someone mentioned bundt cake the other day, which got me thinking about how you don't see them or hear much about them these days. Back in the 70's, when Pillsbury launched their line of Bundt cake mixes, the Bundt was ubiquitous, featured at every cake walk, PTA meeting, and Bridge game in the country (or maybe it was just the South?). If it was a really special occasion--say, a dance recital or a church lock-in--there'd be bundt cake with a tunnel of pudding in the center.

If you're interested in retro food, I found this site while doing research for today: Retro Recipe Challenge. I plan to spend a good portion of my weekend there.

Or you could look thru the Spam recipe book I found last night in the garage.

I didn't realize bundt cake qualified as fodder for nostalgia. My mom gave my brother-in-law a cathedral shaped bundt pan for Christmas a few years ago...and I thought I was the only homosexual in the family....

Wow, I haven't been to a cake walk since I was a kid. Those used to be fun. Of course, we always won the half-baked or the store-bought-disguised-as-homemade. Good times.
