The Cake I don't have a name for!

This is the beginning of an Idea!

Idea starter 
(PS: this video is hilarious and you should watch it)

The idea morphed into something that is uniquely my father.

The only 3 things that stuck from the Cherpumple
were the cherry pie, apple pie, and Cream cheese Frosting (homemade)
The cakes are Banana supreme, Lemon Supreme, and Pineapple Supreme.

Here we go!

This cake takes forever to make. For Reals! Hours!

I wrote my acceptance speech for the life time acheivment award I will win one day!
It goes a little something like....

Hey It's DONE! Finally!

Duh duh duh! Look out for monster cake!
It's like Hypnotoad! 
All Glory to Hypnocake!

Then we cut the cake and well.......
It deflated! 

Here is the deal: It tasted Great! It wasn't too rich, but it was wonderfully tasty! 

If you are brave enough to try this you will get rave reviews!  This is the ultimate in cake! The King of CAKE!
Fair warning though is that it takes a lot of patience and time! 
Have fun!

Oh, I think I have a name...... Sir Cake Cherlemappinpeachnana!

Pizza with a Complete Protien Crust!

Ok after I wrote the title I realized that sounds like the gross mushy stuff from the first Matrix movie.
Dozer : It's a single celled protein combined with synthetic aminos,
vitamins, and minerals. Everything the body needs.

Gross. Quinoa is nothing like that runny stuff, but it is a delicious complete protein! For Reals! 

Quinoa!, a great substitute for almost anything grain wise. If you have celiac disease then this is the stuff for you! It's the stuff for anybody! I love it!

Here are some ways that I use it.
1. Rice in soup. Make the quinoa separately and put into individual bowls.
2. Risotto!
3. Stuffing for anything
4. Breakfast grains
5. I bet it would be good as pancakes
6. My favorite so far....Pizza Crust!
So good. Here are the specks!
2 1/2 - 3 cups of Boliling water or Vegetable stock (adds great flavor)
2 -2 1/2 cups of Quinoa
2 eggs
1 tsp of Garlic, minced
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Mozzerella cheese
1 tbls of flour or quinoa flour (to be gluten free)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Cook the quinoa in the stock until it is softened. It needs to still have a bit of crunch to it, b/c you will bake it in the oven twice. This takes about 15 -20 minutes in a pot of boiling liquid. Tomatoe juice or a spicy bloody mary mix would be fun to try in this recipe....I might do that next time (I'd call the cajun queen).

Let the quinoa cool to room temperature. While it is cooling measure and mix together the eggs, garlic, milk, flour, and cheese. The eggs, flour, milk, and cheese will work together to bind the crust together!

After the quinoa has cooled add it to the egg mixture. Get your hands in there and get's the best part!  When you feel you have thoroughly mixed all of it together, pat it into a pizza pan or cookie sheet.

Bake in your preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Take this time to get your pizza toppings ready.
I made a veggie pizza with pesto sauce and lots of cheese!
Munster, feta, and mozzarella cheese.

Bake your pizza for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly!!!!!
Slice and devour!

Quinoa crust, a New Sensation!

Disclaimer: this pizza was only semi-healthy due to the fact that it contained copius amounts of cheese!

Love ya more than moleasses! (tehehe: refer to previous joke from the father's day post)
