Stop machine and add the rest of the ingredients and process on LOW for about 10 seconds, until ingredients are just moistened. Pour into cake pan & bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, enjoy leftovers like never before!

Not sure I'd want to try this. I'll let someone else go first! :-)
Vegetables would be a possibility, but I'm not putting meat in my cake!
Haven't tried it but sure sounds interesting. Had to laugh at the feed backs so far disijudy's response made me laugh come on girls who will try it first?
I do something very similar but not for baking cakes. I throw leftovers that no one will eat into the food processor. This makes a good base for rice, spaghetti sauce, chicken dishes, gravies really about anything. The leftovers are already seasoned so this saves time and money in the kitchen. Just tonight I used a couple of scoops of a mixture that I made yesterday to make goulash there was nothing left over. What I had used to make my concoction was some leftover pork roast and the vegetables along with other vegetables, some black beans and rice. This also will help to thicken dishes and you can further save money by using less meat. Just a thought, Carla
