The Maathaaland* has DEFIED EXPECTATIONS and sent the Group B from Cricket Champions trophy tournament into mayhem by beating India.

We are all properly gobsmacked at this turn of events. I heard even MamaFizzle was properly enthused.

In the animal world, this would be like:

Anyway, back to food. There once was a cake on a plate.

Look:

DUAUBDCWCCCFTWTCF

This is the story of how the DUAUBDCWCCCFTWTCF came to be on a plate.

First, there was a constantly confused Fizzle who went by the alias SFizzle for reasons best kept secret. The reason for her constant confusion is also best kept secret.

She was tasked with the daunting task of making a cake and putting it on a plate.

She decided to play it safe and go for her tried and true Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Then she realized she had excessive amounts of date syrup in her possession. Also she had to finish an open packet of coconut cream. And so this began a cascade of thought processes that went something like this:

Date syrup?

Ok but then no sugar!

Date syrup instead of sugar?

Take away moisture from somewhere else!

So less yogurt?

Or less butter?

I’ll figure it out.

Coconut cream?

In the cream cheese frosting, of course

Lemme Google it.

Huh

Toasted Coconut flakes

Looks pretty but useless

…I guess I could…

ALRIGHT LET’S DO THIS

So in the end she made a Definitely Untried and Untested Banana Date Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting Topped with Toasted Coconut Flakes. She thought the name was too long so she named it DUAUBDCWCCCFTWTCF. To her confusion, it didn’t catch on. She determined that the best way to make it catch on was to subtly and casually drop it in casual conversation as an already accepted word.

(Let me know if it worked)

Anyway.

Cake

Dried ingredients: 1 1/2 cup flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt

Wet ingredients: Um. I’ll try…2 mashed bananas, 1 egg, 1 cup date syrup, 2 tbsp yogurt…

 

Frosting

Roughly: 1/2 cup Cream Cheese. 1/4 cup Butter. 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar. 2 tbsp Coconut Cream. Alternatively, you could just improvise everything and do it to taste…which actually seems wiser. Yeah, do that.

 

Toast some dried coconut flakes. Or use some sweetened ones. Or don’t use ’em. You have the power to decide.

Assembly: Make a cake…
