We were at Door County for our annual girls weekend when Sherrie introduced us to "Pipka Cake." Pipka sells the special pan at her store in Sister Bay and apparently she makes 6 cakes a week for her customers to enjoy.
This cake is truly amazing because you can turn it into whatever you want! I happen to be a fan of chocolate chip or cranberry. You don't need to have the pan (you could use a meatloaf pan) but it's super cute and once you taste this cake you are going to want the pan! The pan is called Rehrucken Baking Pan. Below is the basic recipe. I tend to like Vanilla extract better then Almond and I add fresh cranberries or chocolate chips. I will be trying to Turtle recipe soon!
