Boughten Cake Mix Version

INGREDIENTS

1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup powdered lemonade mix

DIRECTIONS

1. Check your coffee mugs to make sure each one holds 1 1/2 cups water.
2. Place dry cake mix and dry pudding mix into a large bowl and blend well with a whisk. This will be about 4 to 4 1/2 cups of dry mix and will make 8 coffee cup cake mixes. Divide mix into 8 small plastic bags (about 1/2 cup each). Place mix into a corner of each bag and tie it there with a twist tie.
3. Make glaze mix: in a medium bowl, combine confectioners sugar with powdered flavoring mix. Divide into 8 small plastic bags and close bag with a twist tie. Attach each glaze mix to the cake mix bags with a twist tie. Place one of each bag into each cup.
4. Attach the following instructions to each cup: Generously spray inside of cup with cooking spray. Empty contents of cake mix packet in cup. Add 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of oil, 1 tablespoon water to dry mix. Mix 15 seconds, carefully mixing in all dry mix. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes. While cake is cooking, place ingredients from Glaze mix into a very small container and add 1 1/2 teaspoon water. Mix well. When cake is done, pour glaze over cake in cup. Enjoy while warm.

I was going to do this one tonight but spaced it when we were at the store, as the only "ingredient" we typically keep on hand is the powdered sugar~!

Honey: (an old time recipe)

This is to be used on hot biscuits or toast or sliced bread or as a topping for coffee cake.

5 pounds sugar
1 1/8 pints hot water
Alum size of a cherry
20 Red Clover Blossoms
12 White Clover Blossoms
8 Pink Roses (only PINK roses will do)

Melt the sugar with water and add alum and boil for two minutes. Remove from the fire and immediately add the petals of the blossoms and let stand for 10 minutes. Strain and bottle.

All these recipes remind me of when I was a kid. My parents grew up in that generation when electricity wasn't used in houses yet. I learned to cook a lot of things over an open fire (or in it) or on wood burning stoves. We used to can sausage that way. There's a plant called ramps that grows wild in NC. We used to meet my aunt and her husband, and they would go ramp hunting with my parents. They would bring what they found back and my dad would cook them over an open fire to go with the fried chicken and fried fish my mom brought along.
I've got some recipes from south Louisiana, too. Most people have heard of etoufee, gumbo and jambalaya (that's on tonight's menu) But have you heard of a Cajun microwave? Or potato stew? I don't mind sharing recipes. And if anyone has a recipe for Mississippi Mud Cake, I lost mine years ago and would like to find that recipe again.

Wondering if mincemeat pie is becoming a "historical" food for those of us who don't make our own. Many young folks don't know what it is.
there's a place in hallowell, thats been a store over 140 years,(and many floods) reknowned for thier mincemeat recipe.

the stores name is Boyntons market ,,,right on main street hallowell,
todays owner (karen) still makes it as they did 100 yrs ago.

husseys store in windsor also sells mincemeat (venison)


i remember selling mincemeat pies in stores 25 yrs ago, went very well around christmas,,,,the younger generation hasnt acquired a taste for it, doesnt sell like it use to (mailhot and lacasse, two companies out of lewiston use to sell a huge amount of these pies)
