The Latest Original Recipe from the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen

The marriage of classic breakfast cereal and cake has been baking in the oven of my mind for a while now. So, I finally decided to fire up the test kitchen and give it a whirl. But, just one cake and cereal combo wasn’t going to be enough, so I settled on six delicious duos, which, once filled and finished with frosted flake frosting, stacks up to be one very tall cake!

CAKE

From top to bottom:

 

Cereal soaking up milk ... btw, the Lucky Charms turned an odd shade of grey-green while absorbing the milk, so that layer didn’t make it.

  1. Fill six cake pans nearly to the brim, each with a different cereal.
  2. Pour each in separate bowl and add approx. one cup of whole milk, occasionally tossing to ensure that it absorbs evenly.
  3. When the cereal is milk-logged, pour off excess milk and drink (cuz it’s delicious).
  4. Now mix each with just enough batter to bind the cereal. Pour back into cake pans and bake.
  5. Cool cakes overnight in fridge.

  4. Finish with Lucky Charms Marbits, Trix, Froot Loops and Cocoa Puffs.
  5. Chill, present with much cereal fanfare and serve with style.
  6. Get out the electric knife and start sawing away.
  7. Serve with ice cold glasses of, what else, milk !!! …
