Baby Food Cake

Congratulations, Mrs. Tairy Greene on the birth of your adorable baby boy!

To welcome little Pervis Greene into the world, here's a recipe for Baby Food Cake. Frankly, I'm a little surprised by this recipe because it actually sounds like it could be tasty. I suppose if you set out to make it sickenin though, in true Midwest Cookin fashion, you could substitute different combinations of baby food - strained peas and blueberry buckle would make a deliciously disgustin concoction for sure. Or, in the style of Pervis's father's famous casserole, you could sub baby food macaroni and cheese, baby food "meat" (to take the place of the hot dogs), and cottage cheese for the three baby foods listed below. Mmmmmm-mmm!

3 eggs
2 c. white sugar
1 1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. bakin soda
1 tsp. salt
1 (2.5 oz) jar applesauce baby food
1 (2.5 oz) jar carrot baby food
1 (2.5 oz) jar apricot baby food

Oven temp: 350 degrees

Pan size: 9x13 cake pan

How to:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a medium bowl, stir together the eggs, sugar, and oil. Combine the flour bakin soda and salt, stir into the egg mixture. Finally, stir in the baby food. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool and frost with your favorite cream cheese frostin (yeah, definitely use your favorite cream cheese frostin, and not the cheap crap that you totally hate. I bet you could frost it with good ol Cool Whip too if you're a busy new mom or a total lazyass).
