Dirty Pantry Cake-Chocolate Oreo Cake-and The Winner Is!!!


Oh, my!!! I won the apron drawing over at Aunt Daisys Shoppe~ how exciting!!! Check this shoppe out and while you are at it check out her blog Because Nice Matters…Look at the towels she redone…You will be glad you did….How very clever!!

Dirty Pantry Cake:

Not for eating, Just looking

2 Cups of Applesauce
2 Cups Cinnamon
¼ Cup Salt

Mix all together till it forms a stiff dough. Grease large bundt cake pan…..Press dough into the pan, making sure there are no air bubbles…Bake on the lowest setting for 18-24 hours.
Tap out cake, making sure that it has dried enough to easily come out of the pan…Be careful not to break it….Place on cooling rack and cover with dishtowel. Allow to stand & dry for another 24 hours…Using Spice Fragrance Oil, drench the top and sides of the cake…With gloved hands, rub
ground nutmeg & cloves into & all over the cake…
Allow to dry out for another week…It might crack slightly as it dries…this is normal and adds to the primness of the cake…
Once dried, you can leave it this way or dip the top in hot scented wax to frost the cake.
Wrap with aged cheesecloth around girth of cake and tie off with dirty grungy butcher’s string…You can also use kraft wrapping paper cut into a circle big enough to come up to the top of the cake and tie with the butcher’s string or waxed hemp….Looks wonderful displayed on an old bread board and it smells so good…
