Have you ever had a Charleston Chew? It's a candy bar created in 1922 and named not for the harbor city of Charleston, South Carolina that I love so much, but for the dance of the same name. I guess since the dance was named after the city, however, it sort of IS named for Charleston, South Carolina. The cake is more like a bar cookie, and it was the silliest recipe that GG gave me to try. It sort of just told you what to put in with some random measurements.
|1 stick of butter, 1 box of brown sugar (I used dark brown sugar), 2 eggs, 2 cups self-rising flour, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 cup of chopped nuts. I used pecans.|
|Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan. You use the pan to mix the entire "cake".|
|Add the brown sugar to the melted butter until the sugar melts a bit as well and remove from heat.|
|Mix in the eggs one at a time, beating well. Then add the flour, vanilla, and nuts. (blurry pic-still practicing with the camera)|
|Bake in a lightly greased 13x9x2 glass baking dish. Mine was nowhere to be found, so I used a square dish and a round cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Mine took about 25-30, so just watch it after 20.|
