Everyone has a different taste in food and some people have a more bizarre palate than others. However, it’s not always the normal standard that is accepted by society. What is the weirdest food trend? I’ve got you covered with these 20 bizarre cake recipes.

Some of these items might seem outlandish to you. However, you haven’t seen everything yet! 

1. Vegetable Cake

Are you looking for a different way to get your five a day? Then, try a salad cake that is a popular Japanese treat. These delicious cakes are made from a blend of whole vegetables and soybean flour. This creates the spongy texture. And, cream cheese or tofu is used to make the icing. These gluten-free, low-carb cakes contain no sugar.

2. Water Cake

The water cake is a new delicacy that you should try if you haven’t already. Every cake lover, from the Japanese foodies to the New York hipsters, is eager to sample this new delight. The process of making the water cake is a secret, but it is served with a heavily roasted soybean powder as well as a brown sugar syrup. The magic part? The cake will simply disappear if you don’t eat it in 30 minutes.

3. Baking bacon

You just know that bacon makes everything taste better, doesn’t it? So, this is exactly what drove several New York delis to happily sprinkle their caramel doughnuts with some bacon.

4. Parsley cake

You thought salad cakes were strange? How about a bizarre cake recipe with a leaf as its main ingredient? The parsley cake may not actually sound so bad when combined with mint and some sugar.

5. Tomato Soup Cake

The tomato soup cake has become a bit of a tradition. This unusual cake is less a trend and more a quirky tradition. Rumors say it first actually appeared in the 1920s. It is usually made with a bit of cinnamon, cloves, and raisins. It sounds delicious!

6. Faith Durand’s Dark Molasses Gingerbread Cake

The blackstrap molasses in the ingredients make this bizarre cake rich and complex, and like gingerbread is designed to be.

7. Spiced Dulce de Leche Banana Icebox Cake

This beloved old friend has been spruced up with dulce de leche and bananas, and is now ready for the party! This icebox cake is perfect for weeknight celebrations.

8. Sufganiyot (Jelly Donut) Cake

What happens when you take a jelly doughnut and make it big? This cake is exactly.

9. Carrot Cake with Cardamom

The addition of the yogurt and carrots make this cake moist, while the cardamom ensures that it shines. Add sugar to the frosting according to your taste; if you like your frosting less sweet, you can do the same.

10. Roberta’s Parsley Cake

What’s stopping you from putting rosemary in your frozen yogurt, and thyme into your cookies? Why are people not allowing parsley to dominate the dessert world? Although it may look like Seussian, this green cake is delicious and edible.

11. The Walnut Variation: A Cake

This cake is truly a show-stopper. This cake is dramatic and impressive, and it also tastes great.

12. Tomato Soup Cake

It’s exactly what it sounds like cake with tomato soup. It’s possible, just try making it.

13. Double Layer Cranberry Ginger Upside-Down Cake

This one is packed with raspberry, ginger, and cranberry preserves.

14. Chocolate-Mashed Potato Cake with Ganache

Yes, that’s right. Without being too starchy or savory, the potato makes the chocolate cakes have that moistness that it usually lacks. The edges of the cake, which touch the bundt pan, also become crackly. It is the ideal contrast to the soft cake inside.

15. Grape, Almond, and Olive Oil Cake

This dessert is perfect for last-minute guests. It is thin, fast-baking, and perfectly elegant.

16. Gingerbread Beer Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze

This cake is a combination of beer, mustard, and sorghum to create one of the most intricate, complex, and nuanced chocolate cakes that you will ever taste.

17. Nigel Slater’s Extremely Moist Chocolate-Beet Cake

Move aside, red velvet. The deep pink earthiness of beets is actually perfectly suited to bittersweet chocolate.

18. Nutella Crêpe Cake

This cake can be made with your favorite crepe recipe. Then, layer them with Nutella, jam, or brown butter with lemon juice and powdered sugar (to make it classy).

19. Brown Sugar Apple Upside Down Cake with Apple Cider Caramel and Spiced Walnuts

A special apple cake made with walnuts and caramel is even more delicious.

20. Alsatian Gingerbread

One low-slung, honeyed loaf that is as delicious as it looks.
