Is that a Baltimore thing? A Jewish thing? Anyway we needed to go to Baltimore this past weekend & the thought alone made me crave Rainbow cake.
So I just googled rainbow cake & found caked iced with rainbows - not what I wanted to find, so I added the adjective "Jewish" & found this:
"Jewish Deli Rainbow Cake Recipe Wanted My husband is from Baltimore and grew up eating that wonderful Rainbow cake from the delies back there. Now we live in Southern California and Hanukah is just not the same without it. Its sort-of like pound cake but died red, green, yellow and chocolate with chocolate icing and some type of fruit jelly filling. Can anyone help me recreate this dessert?"
Maybe it is a Jewish Baltimore thing...
(If you are in Baltimore, Goldman's is my preferred bakery for this delicacy & I prefer the jelly filling over the chocolate.)
BTW They kind of look like these cookies - only bigger like a cake. (& I "can" get similar cookies in the DC area, but they ARE NOT THE SAME.)
Now I need to check the aluminum foil package in my lunch bag - could it be a slice of cake?
