I shall be glad to have a recipe or two for making an uncooked cake or dessert using cake crumbs.
Hafee from Colombo, Sri Lanka.
1 can crushed pineapple, reserve juice
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 cup sugar
juice of one lemon
3 envelopes Dream Whip
1 lg. angel food cake
1 box coconut
Drain pineapple and reserve juice. Mix 4 Tbs cold water with gelatin and add 1 cup boiling water and 1 cup of reserved juice. Add pineapple, sugar, lemon juice. Mix. Chill until partially jelled. Whip 2 envelopes Dream Whip according to pkg. directions. Add to gelatin mixture. Line a 4 quart bowl with wax paper. Pinch angel food cake into small bits and place cake and gelatin mixture in bowl in alternate layers until all is used. Chill overnight. Turn out on a flat plate and spread with remaining Dream Whip and sprinkle with coconut.
BLACK FOREST PARFAITS
cherry pie filling
chocolate cake crumbs
maraschino cherries for garnish
In parfait glasses, layer ingredients in the following order: pie filling, cake, pie filling, whipped cream, sprinkles, cherry.
You can make this with any pie filling and any cake. In America the combination of cherries, chocolate, and cream(or vanilla) is usually called "Black Forest" -- don't know why.
One idea is a take on the Scottish Broken Biscuit Cake. Instead of using biscuit (cookie) crumbs, you could try using the cake crumbs. I would wait until they are stale to make this:
One pound plain chocolate
One pound of butter or firm margarine
One pound broken mixed biscuits (or cake crumbs)
Half pound chopped mixed roasted nuts
One teaspoon vanilla a essence (extract)
Melt the butter and chocolate together and stir. Mix in the well broken biscuits, nuts and essence/extract and pour into a 10" by 15" baking tin, lined with greaseproof paper (vegetable parchment). Smooth to a level top and leave it to set. Cut into fingers (literally a finger thick).
