Tunnel of Sugar Plums Cake

This was a Christmas favorite at our house back in the 60s ..I noticed 
someone was looking for the recipe a few years ago. One of the ingredients 
is no longer available and you have to substiute jiffy frosting mix for it. 

Tunnel of Sugar Plum Cake(a Christmas favorite since the 1960's)

1 1/2 cups butter
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chopped cordial cherries
2 cups slivered almonds
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 pkg. Pillsbury Buttercream Frosting Mix (this appears to no longer be on 
the market and I have substituted the small box of Jiffy white frosting mix & 
a little butter flavoring)
1 pkg. instant lemon pudding mix (4 serving size)
Oven 350 degrees 
10" tube pan (greased)

Cream butter in large mixer bowl at high speed.  Add eggs one at a time, 
beating well after each.  Gradually add sugar, continue at high speed till 
light and fluffy.
By hand, fold in flour, cherries, nuts, coconut, and raisins.
Fold in frosting & pudding mixes.
Pour batter into greased bundt or tube pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 
60 - 65 min.
Do Not Invert to Cool
Cool 2 hours, then remove from pan.  Cool completely before serving.
Great served with whipped cream.  Center should still be a little gooey.

Movie Recipes

For a more current listing, see: Literary & Cinematic Recipes

Last week, I talked about literary recipes. Food also plays a role in many movies, and there are several movie recipes on this site as well, including the Armadillo Wedding Cake from "Steel Magnolias", the Bologna Cake from "Sweet Home Alabama", the Key Lime Pie from "Heartburn", "Nipples of Venus" from "Amadeus", and the entire menu from "Babette's Feast". Also, there are dishes that were made famous by actors and actresses or that were created in their honor or that were served at restaurants frequented by celebrities. One cookbook featuring recipes from famous Hollywood restaurants frequented by the stars is "Lost Recipes of Legendary Hollywood Haunts" by Betty Goodwin. I have not seen a cookbook that is particularly composed of recipes from movies.
