Gumdrop Cake



Gumdrop Cake

This was my grandmother’s recipe for Gumdrop Cake. This time, I made it with both gummy bears and jube jubes that I had on hand.

Gumdrop Cake
½ Cup butter
1 Cup sugar
2 eggs
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 Cups flour
¾ Cup milk
1 tsp lemon juice
1 lb gumdrops (about 2 ½ cups)
1 cup raisins (optional)

Combine all ingredients.
The batter will be fairly stiff.

You may have to cut them into bite-sized pieces.

Pour into a bundt pan, a 9×9 pan, loaf pan, etc.
I used several smaller round pans and mini muffin tins as I was making them for gifts.

Spray the pans extremely well.
HINT: Next time, I would line the containers with parchment paper. They are VERY sticky and hard to get out of the containers.

Bake at 350 until done. Time depends on the container used. A large cake would take approximately 35 minutes. Make sure the toothpick comes out of the batter clean to ensure it is cooked through.

Remove from pan fairly quickly so that the gumdrops don’t harden and stick to the pan even more.

These were a huge hit with the kids!
