Shake ‘n Bake Coffee


Marge: Who wants pork chops?
Homer: Sorry Marge, I’m afraid this gets my lowest rating ever. Seven thumbs up.
Marge: You always liked my pork chops.
Homer: Marge, I’m sorry, but your cooking’s only got two moves: Shake and Bake.
Marge: You like Shake n’ Bake. You used to put it in your coffee.
Homer: People change, Marge. My palate has grown more sophisticated.
Marge: Oh yeah, what’s a palate?
Homer: Oh…it’s a…special time in a boy’s life when…got to go!

I’ve previously discussed that Homer enjoys drinking Buttered Coffee. In that coffee I thought he was using the butter as a replacement for cream. So for the Shake ‘n Bake Coffee, I would say that the Shake ‘n Bake is meant to act as a kind of sugar substitute? A terrible, horrible sugar substitute that I will regret testing for a long time.


  • Coffee
  • Shake ‘n Bake


Add Shake ‘n Bake to coffee and stir.

Note: this will not blend into coffee like sugar, and really, why would it?


Did I mention that this was both terrible and horrible? Because I’m pretty sure that I did. I mean, it was no Clove Tom Collins Pie, but it was pretty close. Shake ‘n Bake is delicious on chicken or pork, but completely disgusting in coffee. The little Shake ‘n Bake pieces kind of all congealed together to form this gross lump that I tried and stir out before I took a sip. It tasted like drinking coffee that also had some food at the bottom, which I guess it technically was…
