Science Magic: Singing Cake
What a great addition by Marianne E. Dambra. This is a fun slumber party activity. It also makes a nice project for the daytime and a great way to continue the lesson through out dinnertime.
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs, separated
2 squares bitter chocolate, melted
1 cup raisins
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
4 cups sifted flour
1 cup strawberry jam
1 cup chopped nuts
2 teaspoons baking powder mixed in 1 cup buttermilk
1. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and stir. Add melted chocolate and stir. Add raisins. Add cinnamon, cloves, and flour, stir. Stir in nuts and jam.
2. Now add the baking powder to the buttermilk and quickly stir into the cake mixture. Fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites.
3. Quickly pour mix into greased and floured angel food cake pan.
4. Bake at 350 degrees until cake stops singing, about 45 minutes. Make sure you time this so your guests are present during the baking. Once the cake is baked, the effect is over.
