Pork Cake recipe discovered at the Internet Archive
Nothing says CAKE like glistening slabs of greasy salt pork.
The Internet Archive recently discovered what was believed to be a recipe rightly lost long ago, but thanks to modern scanning technology and dedicated researchers, the Women's City Club of Chicago cookbook from 1923 is available again, with the complete and unabridged recipe for PORK CAKE.
The cake includes a 1/2 pound of fat salt pork, 1 cup of brown sugar, and a 1/2 cup of molasses, for that sickeningly sweet and greasy texture you've never had before but always wanted to try. Figuring out how to add beaten eggs and flour to boiling water without curdling the eggs and turning the flour into a lumpy mess is left as an exercise to the reader.
Be sure to set your oven to "slow" for best results!
