When I saw everyone on Facebook making cakes I didn't want to be left out so I made The Chocolate Chip Cake from The United Cakes of America by Warren Brown. The cake is listed under the state Massachusetts; where the Nestlé Toll House Cookie was created!
Ruth Wakefield is the creator of the Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip cookie. The recipe is still printed on the back of the Toll House Morsels package today!Her and her husband owned The Toll House Inn, which was once located in Whitman, Massachusetts. It has sadly since burnt down, but there is a landmark. The land is now unfortunately home to a Wendy’s and a Walgreens.
The story goes that Ruth was trying to make chocolate cookies and thought the chips would melt in the batter and make the cookies chocolate. The story has been disputed saying that Ruth was an accomplished cook/chef and would have known that the chocolate wouldn't have melted. Either way she has become infamous with the discovery of America’s most iconic cookie: The Chocolate Chip!
The cake is surprisingly decadent and so amazing!! It tastes just like a chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven. The Chocolate frosting in the middle is rich and so incredibly yummy!! I would highly recommend it!
So far, the two cakes I have made from this book has not disappointed! ~ Janet
