I was intrigued when I came across this unusual dessert recipe. Now, ordinarily, I wouldn't think that a dessert containing grits, of all things, would be appealing. But there was a time when I thought rice was a funny choice, too, and I'm now a huge fan of rice pudding. So needless to say, I tried it and surprisingly it wasn't bad. In fact, it was sweet...maybe a little too sweet for some people, but I don't mind.

Here it is:

Grits Cake



  1. Preheat over 350 degrees farenheit (careful here, ovens may vary. Mine does, a lot!).
  2. Mix cake, 2 eggs, butter, and grits in a bowl.
  3. Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, 2 eggs, and vanilla until smooth and creamy.
  4. Spread first mixture into a 9 x 13 pan.
  5. Pour second mixture over cake batter, then bake for 35–45 minutes (once again, ovens may vary).
  6. The top of the cake should be gooey.
  7. If you give this dessert recipe a try, I'd love to know what you think about it!
