I got an old community cookbook this past weekend and came across a cake recipe called "Mocotoke". I tried googling it, and some alternate spellings that I could think of, to no avail so thought I'd try posting here. The cookbook was made in 1954 or 1955 by a Methodist church in Silver Spring, MD. In case it has another name, here's a recipe summary:
4 eggs [separated, whites beaten until stiff], 1/2c sugar, 2c flour, 3T water, 1.5t baking powder, 1t coffee flavoring; bake in 2 layers then fill with coffee flavored whipped cream.
Get the recipes and features that have us talking, plus first dibs on events and limited-batch products.
(Oh, and $10 off your order of $50 or more in the Food52 Shop, too.)
