Alabama Mud Cake & Deep Fried Oreos crossed the threshold of my classroom last week. There was no possible way I could turn down these treats from the 3rd graders who were presenting their state reports. With each state report that was presented by a student they also shared a treat from that given state. When Alabama Mud Cake & Deep Fried Oreos show up at your door you must give them a try! Now doesn’t Alabama Mud Cake above look lovely? *Deep Fried Oreos are at the end of this post.
Well, my oh, my it was divine. The mint wafers truly do make this treat yummified! Keryn, who made these treats for her son’s presentation, told me it is normally made as a cake, but she made them into cupcakes. Her presentation was quite adorable. I just love how she tied that fork on! And..yes, it was quite tasty! What an unexpected fusion of flavors!
- 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, with juice
- 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling

- Then place two chocolate mint wafers on top of the batter. Finally distribute the sliced butter placing one slice over each unbaked cupcake.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool and enjoy.

Deep Fried Oreos
Now these Deep Fried Oreos are down right sinful. They are so tasty and quite the treat. Thank goodness I was only given one to try. Now, I didn’t get the full story on this treat, but here is what I do know. The student who brought me this treat presented the state of Texas. I was quite surprised when he walked in with a batch of deep fried Oreos. I chewed in wonder as I finished this marvelous treat. I wondered what type of batter was used to fry these sweet cookies. Well, the words in the hallway were…Pancake Batter! Yes, can you believe it? Now, we all have something to do with left over pancake batter. Just makes me want to have some left over so I can fry up some Oreos! Yum!
