• Today in History - 1974

    From Dave Drum@1:3634/12 to All on Tue Aug 8 04:35:00 2023
    reeling from the Watergate scandal, and facing the looming prospect of impeachment, President Richard Nixon broadcasts his decision to resign.
    A first in US presidential history, the resignation will become official
    the next day, ending an infamous chapter in political corruption.

    Nixon's resignation was the culmination of what he referred to in his
    speech as the "long and difficult period of Watergate", a 1970s federal political scandal stemming from the break-in of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters at the Watergate Office Building by five
    men during the 1972 presidential election and the Nixon administration's subsequent attempts to cover up its involvement in the crime. Nixon
    ultimately lost much of his popular and political support as a result of Watergate. At the time of his resignation the next day, Nixon faced
    almost certain impeachment and removal from office.

    Title: Gladys Robison's "Tricky Dick" Cakes
    Categories: Cakes, Desserts, Nuts
    Yield: 12 Servings

    16 1/4 oz Box white cake mix; not
    - Angel Food
    3 1/4 oz Box pistachio pudding mix
    3/4 c Oil; the lighter the oil,
    - the better the cake
    3 lg Eggs
    1 c 7-Up or club soda
    1/2 c Chopped nuts

    85 g (2 env) Dream Whip boxed
    - topping mix
    1 1/2 c Cold milk
    3 1/4 oz Box pistachio pudding mix

    Set oven @ 325ºF/165ºC.

    Put the eggs, oil and soda in a bowl, lay the cake and
    pudding mix on top and combine using a mixer. Grandma
    would grease and flour a 9" by 13" pan and that is
    certainly the easiest prep, but you can also do cupcakes
    with liners or any shape cake pans. For a 9" by 13" pan,
    bake for 45 minutes; for 9" round pans, bake for 30
    minutes; for full size cupcakes, I toothpick test at 25
    minutes and mini-cupcakes I check at 20 minutes.

    As long as a toothpick poked in the center of the
    cupcake comes out clean, they're done. Completely cool
    the cake on a wire rack and refrigerate it. This cake
    also freezes well for later use - just don't add the
    frosting until you're ready to serve.

    Now to make the topping. Using a mixer, beat the milk
    and both envelopes of whipped topping until stiff.
    Gradually add in the pistachio pudding mix and continue
    beating until well blended. Spread on the cool cake or
    cupcakes and refrigerate until ready to serve.
