    There is a famous cafe (Bell Buckle Cafe) that has the bestest dessert. You gotta get in there early to get it or they have run out. One of the waitresses that work there gave me the recipe. I have not made this yet, just eaten it at the cafe. Hopefully it's as good as the Cafe's.

    Grits Cake

    1 yellow cake mix
    4 eggs
    1/2 cup melted butter
    1 cup grits
    8 oz. pack cream cheese
    16 oz. powdered sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla

    Preheat over 350 degrees farenheit. Mix cake, 2 eggs, butter, and grits in a bowl.

    Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, 2 eggs, and vanilla until smooth and creamy.

    Spread first mixture into a 9 x 13 pan. Pour second mixture over cake batter, then bake for 35-45 minutes.

    The top of the cake should be gooey.
    Then mix real whipping cream with some sugar ( use 1 pint whipping cream and 2 tbs sugar) to spread on top. You can use frozen or canned but I prefer the real stuff!

    LOL. Grits are a southern thang. We eat them for breakfast...sort of like oatmeal, but you CAN"T substitute oatmeal for grits. They are made from corn. Maybe I can send you some.

    I have been to Bell Buckle, Tenn. Very unique place.

    Grits is ground corn. Cooked in water until soft and tender. Grits is a staple in the South, also the Bahamas.

    Do you use regular or quick cook grits? Cooked or uncooked?

    Hi Heather, GRITS, a white corn product, has the consistency of corn meal. It is almost always boiled until thick, eaten with butter, cheese or sausage gravy or any gravy of your choice. It can be fried in patties or used in a breakfast/brunch casserole with peppers, bacon, eggs, and cheese. It is a SOUTHERN dish. No self-respecting southern household would be caught dead without this main staple .
    I think it's against the law down here to get caught without grits!!! :lol:

    I'm a California, southern gal and I put butter and sugar on my grits like cereal. My southern friends won't sit by me when I "ruin" the grits.:)

    My hubby used to turn up his nose at grits...until I told him he should put some maple syrup and butter on them. Now when we go out for breakfast...he will order them. Its our "mid-western version".
    And.....if you have polenta, the italian version/name, it is pretty much the same thing. The grind might be a little different and it may be yellow corn, but close enough IMHO.
