SPAMITIVITY is starting to flow all over the forum!!!
"Flow" as when a barrel of toxic biohazzard is illegally dumped on the side of a highway.

The Brethren are posting threads of Spam sculpture, Spam prose, even Spam romance!!!


Inspired tonight by the "Green Eggs and Spam" post in the Wood Pile.....


OK, I have not actually seen evidence of Romance yet... but I am sure it is going on! )

That should tell you something about the demographic they are trying to reach... Smart enough to open a can, but only if they are given detailed instructions!

I hear it's a blossoming market segment.

My wife isn't exactly the most adventurous eater so any SPAM experimentation I do would all end up in my already sizeable gut. However...my folks are coming for a visit next week so I think I'll definitely have to bust out a few cans and treat my dad to some gelatinous porky goodness. A TD entry will surely ensue!

I have been struck dumb with astonishment and amazement which is bordering upon spamification!

Woo YEAH, deguerre had to keep me outta this stuff while I put on my...not saying yet...but dayum, I didn't know SPAM could be so good. Maybe we should all stock up on SPAM so we'll have something to eat when the apocalypse actually happens. And his marinate simmered down into a sauce - aaaaahhhhh - wonderful, really, he had to take the spoon from me. Wow, it's a keeper!

Default Spicy Pineapple Uspide-Down SPAM Cake (1 of 2)

So I was researching SPAM cookery when I stumbled across an odd question that someone had posed to Hormel, and Hormel had answered.

The question was whether they had any recipes or ideas for adding SPAM to Cake recipes.



The answer Hormel gave was to substitute the oil in a standard sized cake recipe with a loaf of SPAM.





After the shock and absolutely freakish scare that occurred once I fully processed and understood what they were getting at, I knew I had to try this.

With the Throwdown, my mind had been in the Pineapple realm with SPAM, which is common. So the first cake that came to mind was a Pineapple Upside Down Cake.

I figured if I was making a SPAM flavored Pineapple Upside Down Cake, it might be even BETTER if I kicked it up with some peppers and onion! I mean, not only does SPAM blend well with the flavors of Pineapple, Cherries and Pecans, but it also blends with Peppers and Onions. And likewise, the flavors of Pineapple, Cherries and Pecan go well with the flavors of Peppers and Onions.

This plan seemed like a "can't fail" taste combo. The only trick was whether or not making a SPAM cake would really WORK!

So enough of the talk, here's the cake...







































...continued on next post (I hit the maximum number of images in one post).

Default Spicy Pineapple Uspide-Down SPAM Cake (2 of 2)

























It rose!


It kinda looks like cake.






It looks like cake from the side too!


It sliced like cake, had the texture of cake, even looked like cake on the inside!




Now for the verdict...

It tastes like a spicy hot Pineapple Upside Down Cake with a hint of onion. I could not taste the SPAM at all. I at pieces of the the cake itself to try and discern the SPAM flavor, but all I could get was a "something different" oil based flavor, and that was when trying to seek out the flavor!

So my 15 year old son walks into the kitchen, sees the cake, looks at me, looks at the cake, looks at me again, points at the cake and asks, "What's that other than some sort of Pineapple and Cherry Cake with Nuts sort of thing?" I tell him it is a Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Not easily fooled any more by my creations, and perhaps sensing a smirk on my face, he puts his face down by the cake to get a good smell. He asked, "What smells like BBQ"? I told him it was cooked outside on the smoker, but that it also was a Spicy Hot Pineapple Upside Down Cake that had peppers in it (I did not tell him it had onion or he would not have tried it). So he asks for a "small" slice to try it out. He ate the whole thing, so I asked what he thought. He said, "It was too spicy, next time you should leave out the peppers, but other than that it was really good! He wanted another piece, so he got one! This time he got a glass of milk to go with it even!

...and no...he STILL does not have ANY idea there is SPAM in it at ALL!

IN FACT...I am willing to bet that if you made this without the onions, peppers and cayenne, that you could serve this to ANYONE and they would have NO IDEA it had SPAM in it. I am drop dead farking serious. I think that is why the spicy angle failed...because who in their right mind would add onions, peppers and cayenne to regular Pineapple Upside Down Cake?

SO I CHALLENGE THE BRETHREN...to try this (without the onions, peppers and cayenne of course), and be surprised for yourself, as surprised as I am (I am seriously in a near state of shock here), that there is supposedly SPAM in this cake. I know there is, I put it in there and I have the pictures to prove it. It sure as hell doesn't TASTE like it has any SPAM in it.

So there you go.

And so ends the first Pineapple Upside-Down SPAM Cake experiment at the Baker Research Facility.
