This is something ELSE I’ve been wanting to do for a while (I think I’ve wanted to do everything for a while, honestly). It’s a staple in the southern US. I first noticed it at a sandwich counter here in the neighborhood, then started seeing it everywhere. It’s a simple layer cake but with a very interesting icing made of caramel and a cooked milk-and-butter mixture. Should be fun to examine from a food chemistry angle. Plus of course it’ll boost my street cred as a southerner (even though I’m about as Yankee as they come). Let’s get cookin’ y’all.
