Hello, might be a bit of an odd request but we are driving Route 66 in June (Santa Monica to Chicago) and as a baker I am hoping to collect a number of cake recipes and ideas on route, does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?

Hi Dotty, nice to read a different question for a change!

I have two suggestions:

1) Ask for recipes in diners and cafes along the route. Maybe they'll be kind enough and share them with you?


2) Buy this book! The Route 66 Cookbook: Comfort Food from the Mother Road Deluxe 75th Anniversary Edition: qid=1452357858&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=route+66+cook+book

Sounds like it'd be right up your street ;)

I suggest you cake recipes
1/4 cups all-purpose flour or cake flour (do not use self-rising flour)
2/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups water
3/4 cup shortening (I use
