  1. does that have peaches in it or something? we get that at Mazur's in Lyndhurst but that doesn't help you.

    1. 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?

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

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

              Will you stop with the pictures! You're ruining my diet!

              (That does look decadent.)

            2. 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!

                      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.
