      Tuxedo - You commented about missing Southern House a while back. I still miss Southern House - corn and apple fritters? I know of nothing similar. Has anything popped up?

        I'm pretty sure Mendokers in Jamesburg will make you a good brown derby

          Is this similar to Derby Pie? (Chocolate and nuts in a pie shell.)

              Here in NY it's made with bananas, peaches and strawberries. Is the NJ versiion the same?

                It depends on the bakery, but generally there is some type of fruit between the layers.

                  I think I can see see a banana peeking out from the whipped cream. It looks scrumptious!

                    You are correct.

                      bgut, Here I was thinking that you made that cake -- ace baker that you are! :) However, Googling in search of a recipe, I discovered that those photos are of the Brown Derby Cake from Calandra's. I use their Italian bread and French baguettes but had no idea they also make cakes.

                      So far, no luck finding a recipe on-line for a chocolate Brown Derby cake, only grapefruit (via Paula Deen) or red velvet.

                  There is a bakery on 35 in Middletown. I can't remember the name but it is in the strip mall with Indian Restaurant : Neelam and a WOW fitness. I've seen them in there. They have excellent pastry and cookies; but, i've never had the brown derby.

                    And also Susie's Chocolates (the best candy shop around) and Sono Sushi, a top choice in the area.

                    Also an Italian place that keeps getting one-hit wonder posts pulled..

                    not Monmouth or Ocean but in Middlesex (Edison) you can check out La Bonbonniere, their derby cake is amazing (although I haven't had it anywhere else so I don't exactly have a basis for comparison)
