Things we want to try in our rock cakes:

  • Cream Applesauce
  • Yogurt
  • Tomato paste
  • Blackberry jam
  • Cornmeal
  • Polenta
  • Beer
  • Herbs
  • Cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Cacao nibs
  • Walnuts and almonds
  • Makers Mark
  • Unidentified sweet dessert liquor (Mom, what's it called?)
  • Peanut butter
  • Seeds and spices of varying shapes and sizes
  • Hot peppers
  • Coconut oil
  • Ghee
  • Eggs
