Easy Syrup Cake


Sugar cane begins with a 12 inch long “slip” cut from a stalk of cane. Then a Cajun turns the sugar cane into a by-product called syrup cake. Sugar cane takes 24 months from initial planting to harvest; this cake takes a lot less time than that to bake.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cane syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup boiling water


Step 1

In a medium mixing bowl, mix eggs, sugar, syrup, vanilla, baking soda, cooking oil and boiling water.

Step 2

Add flour to the mixture, batter will be very thin.

Step 3

Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Makes 24 squares. Store in a sealed container.
