Just a quickie today, because I’m on vacation from my day job and have decided not to spend the whole vacation online. (Weird, I know.)

I have to go with all the others I’ve seen who made this cake: It’s more of a steamed-pudding-ish thing, but I like it! If I make it again, I’ll have to be sure to be more careful, because it broke up on unmolding, but I’m a huge fan of farina with raisins, so this cake was right up my alley.

(James is not a big fan of hot cereal, so his opinion was not sought. The kid liked it, but pronounced it “Weird. Not bad-weird. Just weird. Kinda more pudding-like than cake.” Exactly. Like a steamed pudding. Parents are always right.)

    1. I’ve been thinking about it, and I think I don’t like it any more than a bowl of hot cereal, so I probably would just make the hot cereal instead of the cake. The apple cake, now, that’s a different story. Yum. :-)

  1. Your cake looks lovely. And I agree that this is more like a pudding, however, there is cheesecake, flourless cake, etc…that are not the traditional mental image of “cake”…this is made in a cake pan, has cake type ingredients, has a topping….so it can be a cake.

    1. Oh, I totally agree with you, but with cheesecake, to use one of your examples, that doesn’t feel like cake to me, either, even though I agree it’s fine to call it cake. :-)

  2. I am glad you liked it! It was not the most popular Dorie’s dish in my family, but I LOVED it, and to me, it was a success. I ate it for several days, enjoying every bite, raisins and all.
    It was custardy, like a pudding, not too sweet, and therefore OK to eat at regular intervals, he, he:)
