Scoring for a case of TastyKakes
To score the first goal of the game and win a case of TastyKakes.
example: “He shoots, he scores – for a case of Tastykakes!” – Gene Hart
Tastykakes were born and bred in the Philadelphia area and supply several states on the east coast with their scrumptious snacks. The Kandy Kake was created in the 1930’s and consisted of yellow cake, covered with peanut butter and dipped in chocolate. Tastykakes eventually became sponsors for the Philadelphia Phillies & Flyers. Along with the soft pretzel & cream cheese, Tastykakes have become a Philadelphia icon.
During the Stanley Cup run in the 1970’s, the goal call of the late Hall of Fame announcer Gene Hart was “He shoots, he scores – for a case of Tastykakes!” Each Flyers player who first scored a goal was awarded a case of the yummy Tastykakes. Currently, the case of Tastykakes is given to the favorite charity of that particular player who scores first.
The Tastykake recipe below is for the chocolate peanut butter Kandy Kakes, which is one of my favorite childhood treats.
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Cup of milk
- 2 Cups of sugar
- 2 Tablespoons of butter
- 2 Cups of all purpose flour
- 2 cups of peanut butter
- 2 cups of chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a large pan (preferably 10-15 inches). Whisk together flour and baking powder in separate bowl.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, sugar & vanilla. Using a hand mixer beat until thoroughly combined.
- Beat in flour mixture.
- Pour batter into pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Once cake is cool, using a round cookie cutter, cut circular pieces of cake (optional). *
- Using a spatula, spread peanut butter over cake. Refrigerate until peanut butter is hardened.
- Using a double boiler, melt chocolate and spread over cakes. Refrigerate to set.
The cake may be left in the pan as a square cake rather than cutting into round cakes. Also, try them frozen! I swear they taste better than a hockey puck.
Sink your teeth in and score!
