Last week Jeanne requested a recipe for a "Nameless Cake." Marilin S sent this:

An old favorite of my Mom's ... saw the request and it brought back memories, so went looking ...

"Nameless" Cake

3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon cider vinegar *to "sour" the milk
3/4 cup crisco
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. lemon extract (omit if you don't like lemon, but gives a nice lift to flavor)
1 3/4 c. cake flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 Tbsp. Cocoa powder

Mix together vinegar and milk and set aside to allow milk to 'sour'. Cream the shortening and sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time, then add vanilla & lemon extract. Sift dry ingredients together, including spices & cocoa. Alternate dry ingredients & milk mixture to creamed crisco & sugar. Blend batter together well. Divide batter into two greased & floured 8-inch pans. Bake @ 350 for 25-30 minutes.

Icing (this is the coffee "twist" to this nameless cake)

1/2 cup butter
3 cups confectioners' sugar
2 Tsp cocoa (I use 3)
2 Tbsp. strong, hot coffee

Cream butter and sugar. Add cocoa and coffee. Ice cake once it's cooled.

Refrigerate any leftovers and serve either cool or at room temperature.

Notes: tastes like a lightly spiced cake with coffee/mocha icing. Nice Combination

Laird E is looking for coleslaw he remembers from his childhood:

When I was growing up in Wisconsin, we had so many church dinners where they would make home-made coleslaw. I haven't had any that good since I left the state. It was slightly sweet and I believe that it had cream in it. A little shredded carrot for color, and usually some celery seeds. Could someone give me a recipe, please? I am tired of searching for it on-line.

Thank you,

Laird
