Binging with Babish: Angel Food Cake from Groundhog Day
Happy Groundhog Day all! It's the magical time of year when a homeowner's backyard nightmare reluctantly, but alertly predicts the weather. As the snow piles up here in New York City, I can think of no more fitting tribute to this particularly bizarre ceremony than recreating the centerpiece of Phil Connors' immortal diner feast: angel food cake, eaten in one hedonistic bite. After a year that's felt an awful lot like Groundhog Day personified, let's ring in a new...groundhog year together with this classic teatime cake!

    I've always wanted to see you do the "Special Order" from the movie Ratatouille: @ Sweetbreads a la Gusteau: Sweetbread cooked in a seaweed salt crust with cuttlefish tentacle, dog rose puree, geoduck egg, dried white fungus, and anchovy licorice sauce. Hopefully you can change it as it's going out the door.

    Just gonna say, stuffing that entire cake slice in your mouth with a beard probably wasn't the best idea. But hey, props to you for making sacrifices for the sake of entertainment.

    Literally subscribed after seeing this video. I have watched this movie dozens of times and I always thought that breakfast looked appetizing with that particular cake treat being the most enticing. I can't believe I will finally be able to enjoy this!

    My wedding anniversary party was actually at the restaurant and in the town from the movie. They’ve got groundhogs everywhere. They’re super proud of it

  • Sherry

    Did you ever do a mirror cake ?

  • _Paws_

    I just realized Lilo and Stitch made a reference to this, especially the part when Stitch ate that one slice of cake then later on spat the whole slice out.

    You should do a "bachelor kitchen starter plan" - a shopping list for people moving out and having to start their kitchen from scratch, things they can make a solid set of meals from. Level 2 being stuff to start branching out with

    A great way to introduce the better Babbish version for a Groundhog Day ep. +1 for Bill Murray Month. Suntory get on that sponsorship! I wanna see that awkward Babbish version of the Whiskey commercial from 'Lost in translation'

    You should check out the Field Snack from Stardew Valley! Making something with pine cones, acorns, and maple seeds seems like a cute challenge.

    I haven't watched groundhog day so I'm going to go ahead and believe that this is a pink cake from stardew valley.

  • Raxi

    As any chef will tell you, only a culinary master can eat an entire angel cake piece in one bite.

  • Corwin Dentry

    Interesting, this is not at all how Angel food cake is served where I live. We don’t frost it. Instead it’s served in a bowl with either whipped cream or ice cream and a berry syrup poured over the top.

    Babish !!! Don't put eggs in water, the shell is not permeable and water allows bacteria & salmonella to go through the shell.. Maybe in the USA its okay since they do things to your eggs before they end up in the supermarket, but Certainly not on the old continent !! Put a disclaimer or something, I worked in a pastry shop, my boss would've killed me if he saw me put eggs in cold water :s
