Strawberry banana cake

I love how enthusiastic my daughter is about baking .Half the time I don't even have anything planned out I just start pulling out my flours n sugar and start rummage through my fridge . Lucky for you I had fresh strawberries and 1 lonesome banana . 

1/2 cup lard
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup white rice flour
1/3 cup sweet sorghum flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 banana -mashed
* 1/2 cup of walnuts would do nicely as well  

Heat oven to 350F . Cream lard ,sugar , vanilla and eggs together . Slowly add the flour and gently stir in the fruit . Pour batter into an 8" springform pan . Bake for 20-25 minutes .

Deep fried clams and chocolate cake

Chocolate cake with triple berry preserve.

                 Deep fried clam meat two ways . 

My chocolate cake recipe has grown legs and is MIA . Here is the recipes for deep fried clam meat two ways . 

1 package clam meat
2 cups rice crackers crushed
1 tsp salt and pepper 
1 tsp chili powder
1  egg
1/2 cup white rice flour

1 package of clam meat
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1 egg
1 tsp salt

For crunchy style dredge clam meat in flour dip in beaten eggs then toss in crunchy mixture . fry at 100 F for 30 seconds . Do in small batches so they don't stick .

Batter combine everything but clam meat in a bowl . Add water if too gummy . Dip clam meat into batter and fry at 100F for 30 seconds . Also do in small batches because these tend to stick together .

I've been quite busy lately as summer usually is but I have been doing my test kitchen just not posting (bad me I know) . In the next few days I will catch up with my posts as I just made an awesome lemon cake and cocoa peanut butter cookies with jam . mmmmmm jam . There now you have something to look forward too.

Happy test kitchens everyone!
