How much do we ALLLL seriously love donuts !!! … I KNOWWW !!! … Secretly I’m always looking for another excuse to eat more of them … and I just found one !!! …
Smashed Stale Donut French Toast is a picture perfect party pleasing activity extravaganza sure to engage all your guests. Get the whole gang involved in smashing the donuts. Who doesn’t want to see a donut get run over by a car ??? …
Recently, I gotta a call asking if I’d ever heard of Stale Donut French Toast …I hadn’t but it sounded DELISH !!! … So I decided to give it a whirl in my Test Kitchen…
BUT it seemed to me the donuts would be waaay better if they were flattened before French Toasting …
So I loaded up on day old donuts, headed to the legendary, landmark Bob Baker Marionette Theater and started smashing. I whipped up an egg bath, fired up my fave vintage electric skillet and let the fun French toasting begin.
Of course, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is one of my all-time faaave foods. I want some NOW !!! … So I thought it was HIGH time I boiled up a box, or five, and added it to some dyed-to- match cake batter.
Marrying highly popular and processed food products is something I enjoy doing way more than I care to admit. Its fun food science and its predictably unpredictable. BUT, sometimes, just like in real life the marriage doesn’t go well. Oh well.
Why oh why ,I ever thought the marriage of macaroni and cheese, Cheez Whiz, Cake and Cream Cheese frosting would be a good idea is beyond me. Unless you like cold macaroni and cheese topped with cake frosting this is one Test Kitchen concoction I don’t recommend you try.
Cheeerz to Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, Cheez Whiz, cake and cream cheese frosting just not baked together !!! …

Nothing says DESSERT like a CHERPUMPLE!
It’s an original recipe from the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen, and the most talked-about new dessert to come along in years.
Cherpumple is short for CHERry, PUMpkin and apPLE pie – the three pies each baked in a layer of cake. Cherry pie in white cake; a pumpkin pie in yellow cake, and apple pie in spice cake!
WHAT YOU NEED
Bravery … to even attempt to make and bake a such a a culinary creation sensation.
3 9″ round cake pans … BUT …10” cake pans work better I, frankly, finally broke down and replaced my cheapo 9” cake pans from the supermarket with bigger, better ones from the pro bake shop. Ooh la la I’m getting fancy !!! …
Sturdy cake plate
Vintage electric knife to cut it with (not really necessary but makes for good show)
1 8″ frozen pumpkin pie
1 8″ frozen apple pie
1 8″ frozen cherry pie
LET THE CEREAL FRYING BEGIN!
Fried cereal is a toasted sweet crunchy buttery snack treat – the latest original taste treat sensation from the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen.
Kids, adults and senior citizens love fried cereal. It’s the new Chex Mix!
If you love your favorite cereals now – wait until you taste them fried in butter! Not deep-fried, more like sautéed. Frying cereal won’t make it soggy or turn to mush. Frying will make it beyond delicious!

I’ve baked pies in cakes, candy in cakes, Cheese Wiz and even Spam, experimenting in the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen, so it’s high time I cross pollinate cookies and cake. I’m talking supermarket superstar cookies – Oreos, Nutter Butters, Chips Ahoy, Fudge Stripes and Circus Animals, of course. But before they meet up with the batter, they’re soaked overnight in half & half. Go ahead and use cream if you want to. I would’ve, but I didn’t want to kill you!
The sweet surprise of this kooky cake is that with all the added cream the finished frosted combo of cookies and cake turned out to be delicious, of course, but in a special cheesecakey kind of way.
2 pkgs Oreos
2 pkgs Nutter Butters
2 pkgs Chips Ahoy
