Brown-Eyed Susan Cake

The yellow and brown (chocolate) marble cake is from the 1933 Betty Crocker New Party Cakes.  The Black-eyed Susan is the official drink of the Preakness.


The horse race has been held at Pimlico Race course since 1873 where the winning horse is draped with Maryland's state flower, the Black-eyed Susan.  The drink, started about 40 years ago with vodka, rum, orange and pineapple juices, is yellow in a tall glass. The recipe has changed often.

But back to the brown eyes....
