Thunder and lightning cake recipe
Thunder Cake by Patricia PolaccoA loud clap of thunder booms, and rattles the windows of Grandmas old farmhouse. This is Thunder Cake baking weather, calls Grandma, as she and her granddaughter hurry to gather the ingredients around the farm. A real Thunder Cake must reach the oven before the storm arrives. But the list of ingredients is long and not easy to find . . . and the storm is coming closer all the time!
Reaching once again into her rich childhood experience, Patricia Polacco tells the memorable story of how her grandma--her Babushka--helped her overcome her fear of thunder when she was a little girl. Ms. Polaccos vivid memories of her grandmothers endearing answer to a childs fear, accompanied by her bright folk-art illustrations, turn a frightening thunderstorm into an adventure and ultimately . . . a celebration!
Whether the first clap of thunder finds you buried under the bedcovers or happily anticipating the coming storm, Thunder Cake is a story that will bring new meaning and possibility to the excitement of a thunderstorm.
Orange Lightning Cake
She starts fourth grade in the fall and we finally got all of the ingredients gathered in time to make this cake when the big storms rolled through a few days ago. In the story, a child is afraid of storms so the grandmother shows her that they can mix all of the ingredients for the cake just like dark the storm swirling outside. Although we usually love storms in this household, some of those lightning bolts hit a little too close to home so we made the cake for good luck…to keep our house safe from any damage. Personally, I think this cake rivals Portillos. The process of making the cake is also a great distraction for the kids on a stormy day.
Grease a 20cm-diameter cake tin and line the base with baking paper. Cut the orange into quarters, remove the seeds and whizz in a food processor until finely chopped. Dissolve baking soda in water and add to the food processor with butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and flour. Whizz to combine. Pour into prepared cake tin and bake until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean about 1 hour. Orange Lightning Cake will keep in an airtight container for up to a week or can be frozen.

She believes her grandparents formed who she is today. The most interesting thing about Polacco, is that she did not learn how to read until she was
