So I go to the Farmer's Market Saturday.
Among the vegetable vendors I spy a couple selling boiled peanuts. MMMMmmm. I love me some good boiled peanuts! As I was talking to them, the gentleman said, "Here, try this cake here. I'm trying something new. It's called 'Collard Green cake'."
I was torn. I do like collard greens and I do like cake. I just never dreamed they would marry up together! Unfortunately, I'm unable to resist the words "cream cheese icing", so I had a piece.
It was green.
Not a natural green.
More of a light St. Patrick's Day Green. Icing and all.
At his urging to take a big 'ole slab, I took a small one.
Tasted like cake. A dense cake. Not sweet, so the icing was a good touch. He wanted to know if it were marketable.
I told him as long as he didn't tell anyone it had collards in it, perhaps he could.
Collard Green Cake.
Coming to a bakery near you.
