A Weird, but Strangely Yummy Recipe!

This is a recipe that I picked up in 1982 in Hong Kong….. Stuck with me ever since…. Sorry if I have used this without asking permission… But, who to ask?

This is specially for G and I! Hugs to you girls!

RITZ CAKE

3 egg whites

1/2tsp baking powder

3/4 cup of sugar

20 crushed Ritz crackers (I usually put the crackers in a plastic bag and take out my frustration with a rolling pin… ) Hehe!

1 cup of crushed nuts…. use any nuts… no shells …. LOL!

1/2 tsp vanilla extract….. Go with the flow, use what you can afford!

METHOD

Beat egg whites, adding baking powder….. until stiff

Fold in sugar, crushed crackers, nuts and vanilla…. with a metal spoon

Pour into a buttered and floured 8 inch cake pan, bake 30 minutes  at 325f or 165c

When cool, spread with thin layer of chocolate!  Serve with whipped cream!   Amazingly rich somehow…… Look below for a quick recipe for chocolate glaze!

OK, sure you all know it…. but this is the easiest I have come across…. As you can see, I want taste with few ingredients!

Approximately 3-4 ounces of ….GOOOOD Chocolate

1 small spoon of butter

METHOD

Choose a saucepan and a pyrex, or other bowl that fits in the saucepan… Put a little water in pan….

Put chocolate and butter in bowl…. melt carefully above boiling water…. Make sure no water splatters into chocolate!

When melted, quickly pour over cooled cake and spread around and on the sides! Cool!

When I say butter and flour the pan…. take a bit of kitchen roll, a little butter or vegetable oil, paint the pan….. toss in a little flour and throw it round…. when coated, pour out the rest of the flour… not down the sink….. 

Enjoy!   EP
