Cupcakequeen, you are my savior. Through no fault of my own, I got roped into participating in a SPAM Cook-off at work. I had to find something to make that would be 'fashionable', as I am not the spreadable spam app with crackers type of gal. I really wanted something that would really rock the boat...you know, make people mildly scared, but intrigued at the same time? This was it! I sliced the spam as thin as possible with a mandolin, then fried it to oblivion to remove any chewy texture. I then shredded it to a super-fine consistency in the food processor. Taking another reviewer's tip, I shaved Lindt dark chocolate into the batter as well. WOW. It was amazing! Since Spam is virtually a flavorless salt block, I opted to add a little liquid smoke to the batter as well to mimic bacon...it wasn't overpowering and really brought out the chocolate/ coffee flavor. I came in second place! A co-worker who is a professional cake maker on the side said I should have won, and I take her opinion over all others. Great job cupcakequeen!
