Fried cakes Tue, 05/27/03 11:25 AM (permalink)
When I was growing up, my grandmother in Madison WI used to buy heavenly morsels from the Women's Exchange Bakery. She insisted that I call them fried cakes, but most people would say donuts. According to Grandma, fried cakes NEVER have toppings. Made of cake-like batter in which flecks of spices were clearly visible, and fried to a delicate crunch on the outside, we used to buy them by the multiple dozen when we arrived on Saturdays for football games. They had a flavor that surpassed most bakery donuts that I have eaten, probably because of those spices.

Has anyone else ever heard the term fried cakes used? The bakery is long gone, and despite an unending search I have only found one other bakery that makes donuts (excuse me, fried cakes) that live up to the WE Bakery version, the Bay Bakery in Whitefish Bay, WI. Now we have to pick them up there early so that we can deliver them to my sister in Madison on football Saturdays!
