Trivia Tuesday ~ Snack Cake Wars

Trivia Tuesday ~ Snack Cake Wars

What has two chocolate sides and a creamy filling in the center?  If you said an Oreo cookie, you’d guess wrong.  Here’s a few more clues;

  • What may have been originally known as the Gob?
  • What looks like an over-grown Oreo cookie but isn’t?
  • What has Maine and Pennsylvania in a lawsuit over possession of its origin?

No it’s not an ice cream sandwich.  And no, to my great dismay, it isn’t the Gobstopper from Willy Wonka either.

Ranchwoman’s Cobbler

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 3 tsp. Baking Powder
  • Water for batter
  • 1 gallon Fruit, cherries are preferred but any fruit will do
  • Lemon juice and sugar to taste

     In a large cobbler pan or medium Dutch oven, stir all dry ingredients.  Add enough water to make a thick batter.  Spread evenly.  Drain juice from the fruit and add a little salt, lemon juice and sugar to make juice taste good.  Spread fruit on the batter and pour juice over it.  Bake at 350^F for 1 hour.

     If you use a Dutch oven and cook outdoors, live coals are put on the lid until the cobbler begins to puff up and gets a little brown.  Take coals off the lid and continue cooking slowly.
