I've come across some interesting recipes that have regional or restaurant or family origins, or unusual names, such as: Claim Jumper Chocolate Motherlode, Hummingbird Cake, Lady Baltimore Cake, Waldorf Astoria's Red Velvet, and Texas Sheet Cake.
Have you come across any others that you'd like to share?

There's a few in my Cake Mix Doctor cookbook - Holy Cow cake, Finger Licking Good cake, Better than *** cake. I personally adore the recipe of the Finger Licking Good cake. That's the stuff of dreams for me. You should try the Chocolate Cola cake sometime if you're a chocoholic. There's the Tennessee jam cake - spice cake filled with blackberry preserves and frosted with a brown sugar frosting. There's also a Tomato Soup Spice cake and then, of course, the Friendship cake. I can't think of any region specific cakes in the midwest. The only thing Nebraska stands out for is Runza, Dorothy Lynch dressing and Valentino's pizza. icon_rolleyes.gif
I think there might be a Mount Vernon cake. Don't quote me on it though.

How about Kentucky Stacked Pie, or Shawnee Run Jam Cake-both yummy concoctions!

Thanks! Those sound interesting. I'm off to google them now.

I also found something called "Rabbit Ass Dessert". Somebody's Grandma was shaving chocolate from a leftover Easter Bunny to put into a desssert, hence the name.

Any others?
