A young girl who is afraid of thunderstorms discovers she is braver than she realized when she helps her grandmother gather the ingredients for a “Thunder Cake” just as a storm is rolling in. This classic picture book about overcoming one’s fears includes a recipe for a chocolate-tomato (yes, tomatoes!) cake.
I already had all the ingredients indoors, but it was a stormy night when I tried making a Thunder Cake of my own (without frosting or strawberries though). Scrumptious!
