"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Bake in greased and floured bundt pan at 275 for 1 1/2 hours.

Personal Notes:
A sensation in Columbia, South Carolina when a storm forced evacuation of the football stadium. Heels lost but all the fans enjoyed this cake in the hotel bar. Also served at Mimm's lake house with Wesley's friends when spoons were required!
