Sausage breakfast cake

    1 hour 50 min

    It really just tastes like a spice cake with nuts and raisins - you can't really taste the sausage in it, except it does make it a coarser texture. Serve with coffee. It keeps you full on a cold morning!

    This is not a joke. I searched & found 122 websites with this recipe. Apparently it is a breakfast food. Some people like a pancake wrapped around a sausage, or maple syrup flavored sausages. I guess this is along those lines. I don't know about that sausage ice cream though. Sounds really weird.  -  16 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    ran across this recipe by accident, and just had to try it. Made as recipe as directed except per other recipes on the net I changed the spices a bit to 2t cinnamon, 1/2t allspice, 1/2t cloves. and 1/2t nutmeg. Brought it to work this morning for my coworkers to try. It really tastes like a spice cake, can't taste the sausage or the coffee in it, except it does have a different texture, maybe from the sausage. I drizzled the top with a glaze of powdered sugar, touch of milk and vanilla (per other internet recipes). Average review from work: 2 1/2 stars, most workers said it was "good" but not something they would beg me to make again. Hope this helps those of you that were skeptical. Also, baked at 350 degrees and was completely done in 1 hour not the stated 1 1/2 hours.  -  01 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yay! I had this recipe in the booklet that came with my Bundt pan and was heartbroken when I lost it. I always got raves (and a few puzzled 'what is in this - it's delicious!') when I made it for parties. It'll be great to make it again!!! Thanks!!!  -  06 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
