After 10 years of living in NC, I finally tried my first Pig Pickin' Cake 🍰 at Seagrove Family Restaurant during #theheartofnc media tour. The Randolph County diner serves classic favorites like meatloaf and unique specials, like the Big Pig 🐷 Sandwich.
Pig Pickin’ Cake is a traditional Southern dessert that got its name from barbecues where an entire pig 🐖 was roasted. Although there are different variations of this dessert, I can guarantee this Southern classic is a must have when visiting Seagrove Family Restaurant. If you are too full, do like @heidibillotto & I did... we took ours to-go to snack on after lunch 😂😋🍰. #pigpickin#pigpickincake#seagrovenc#randolphcounty#friyay#eatcake#southerncakes#ncbbq
Still looking at the Southern Living Magazine (Oct. 2018 issue) and came across this Blackberry Jam Cake that sounds very similar to one my grandma’s grandma used to make. Mama Lola (but the family refers to her as “Mama Lole.”) apparently made a Blackberry Jam Cake that would knock your socks off, according to my Mama. She has the recipe somewhere and we will go digging for it when we get back from this beach trip. But in the meantime, check it out. If you use that Blackberry Jam I told you about, you too can have your socks knocked off. Oh, and side note: I am going to try making Mama Lole’s with an updated version using Auria’s Salted Caramel Kaya for the caramel for the frosting recipe. #blackberry#blackberryjam#blackberryjamcake#cake#kaya#coconutcaramel#coconutblackberry#baking#southerncakes#antiquecakes#rileylandcollection#tellafriend [Photo: Victor Protasio; Prop Styling: Cindy Barr; Food Styling: Torie Cox]
After I let you in to my personal meltdown yesterday, I thought I would share the finished product! This is the little classic Southern-style cake that caused so much trouble! Lemon cake with (no longer runny) fresh strawberry mousse and lemon zested cream cheese icing. Topped off with some candied lemons for good measure! So unassuming sitting there now....but such a trouble-maker....
