Nasty Cake

Rated as 3.33 out of 5 Stars

"This is the absolute best Southern cake recipe ever. A friend of mine gave me this, and said her momma from Georgia gave it to her. We call it 'Nasty Cake' because it is so good, but has so many calories. This is not for those trying to watch their weight! Use a deep cake pan."

  1. Prepare batter and bake cake as directed on the package.
  2. About 5 minutes before the cake is finished baking, melt the butter in a large saucepan to allow for foaming, and stir in the evaporated milk. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, and stir in the corn syrup and sugar. Bring back to a boil, stir to dissolve sugar, turn off the heat, and add the baking soda. Stir continuously until the baking soda is mixed in and stops foaming, about 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the cake from the oven, and poke holes in the hot cake with a butter knife or the end of a wooden spoon. Pour the syrup over the hot cake, and let cool before cutting.

i made this today because i was bored. looking at the title and steps of the recipie, i can tell that not much thought was put into this. It also tasted bad. not as the details rave about it.

The title says it all. Sorry, not for me.

The kids really loved this cake. I didn't get a chance to taste it so I'm going off of the kids review :) Must have been really good since it didn't last long around here.

Nothing really very special about this, it's just an extra-moist boxed cake. Fine, but nothing earth-shattering.

Yucky cake is more like it. If you think this is the best cake out of GA, you are sadly mistaken. I will not be making this again because about 3/4 of it went to the trash.
