Binging with Babish: Angel Food Cake from Groundhog Day

Avaldati 2 veebr 2021
Happy Groundhog Day all! It's the magical time of year when a homeowner's backyard nightmare reluctantly, but alertly predicts the weather. As the snow piles up here in New York City, I can think of no more fitting tribute to this particularly bizarre ceremony than recreating the centerpiece of Phil Connors' immortal diner feast: angel food cake, eaten in one hedonistic bite. After a year that's felt an awful lot like Groundhog Day personified, let's ring in a new...groundhog year together with this classic teatime cake!

  • “ Hwire wisk “

  • My Favorite video !!!

  • Does anyone know if this would possibly work with a dunct pan?

  • The speak easy show charlton Amy Michael Stephen Greg Motorway grandmum,s we going Planet audio org after planet audio org back to kiwi seven sharp Hillary Barry show Duncan garner Amanda gillies mark richardson Aziz al sa fin weekend nighy carly Flynn planet audio org back to kiwi

  • Culinary school has me accidentally watching you to try to learn things

  • My grandma used to put the pan upside down on the neck of a bottle while it cooled

  • Ahah he said it 3:00 he said kosher salt again

  • The cake is a lie

  • It looks just the pink cake from Stardew Valley and Minecraft.

  • You gotta better yourself. *[stuffs face with cake]*

  • Make the lie from Portal

  • I read an article about an estimated time on how long Phil connors was stuck in the same day, its not 100 percent confirmed, however the article says he could have been stuck in that same day for 10 years. Also, Bill Murray is also one of my favorite movies and Ground hog day is also one of my favorite movies.

  • "my cream is a bit too rough because i overbeat it" - babish 2021

  • The cake slice was definitely thinner in the movie, which makes it even more impressive that babish fit that whole slice in his mouth the second time

  • Deja vu

  • This is just a very long outro

  • I've gotta make this

  • Whire whisk

  • Why do I hate you so much

  • Can you make Squidward's cake?

  • So the oven do you have to pre heat it

  • I've watched your vids but neverr got to try it out myself

  • Your beard got more cake than you did

  • Who notices that people keep walking around because of reflection in oven

  • a binging with babish vid on my birthday, must be Christmas

  • Just how many times should I watch people ruthlessly stuff their faces with angel food cake to a point where they're almost gagging?! Loving it lol


  • Please make the fake omlette from batman vs superman

  • "Beet until stiff peaks "😏

  • My dad used to work at old Los Angeles Entenmann cake factory in ~1940s. He used to remove angel food cakes from their pans two at a time by slamming them into the counter. That probably wouldn't be advisable with your style pan with the raised center. He once tried this trick in his Home Economics class in school and scared the beejebus out of the teacher, but ended up with a perfect cake.

  • I live in the town where groundhog day was filmed infact my first date with my girlfriend was in the town square with all the Christmas lights

  • I know I'm gonna have some backlash on this, but aside from how funny this was, this was my least favorite video from babish. I've always hated angel food cake, and I've always hated whipped icing, and seeing them together was a nightmare. When it comes to cake, I'm not all that for it; but when/if cake is an option/choice, there's only 3 that I love the, Honey Bun, Red Velvet, and Pound cake.

  • 😂😂😂😂

  • All I heard is diabetes

  • Local food man gets messed with by an scp clock

  • that fact that bill muray is one of his fav actors is a bit upsetting

  • Netflix: are you still watching? Someone’s daughter: 7:16

  • On theme, with enduring enthusiasm, clearly showing the tweaks and how they're going to better the cake, and keeping in the mistakes so we can learn. This is just great, truly.

  • Man that looks yum. Don't think I've ever had that. Is it kinda like a pavlova?

  • I’m cackling at 7:13

  • meringue tip: add about 1/4 tsp of cream of tartar when beating the egg whites (before the sugar)- helps the meringue whip up thicker and makes it less likely to collapse or go runny source: am Australian, make a lot of pavlovas

  • I mean.. that's the only way you can really eat angel food cake. It's so squishy that you feel like you just gotta stuff it all in.

  • JESUS LOVES YALL 💘💖❤💕💗💓💘💖❤💕💗💓💘💖❤💕

  • think of all of those starving children in africa that could've used that alarm clock

  • Lol

  • He should've looped it for 10 hours am I right

  • I torn. I want to go watch Groundhog day, but I also want to go bake (and eat) the cake

  • That cake looks like a lie

  • It looks like the Pink Cake from Stardew Valley 🎂

  • Pro tip: when separating egg whites, don't do it over the bowl where you have the whites already you already got, because even a little bit of yolk can render all 6 egg whites in the bowl useless for whipping into a meringue. Ask me how I know.

  • I'd eat thst cake until I'm sick then eat more

  • Its 12:32 am and im hungry

  • I like the implication that trying to shove that slice of angel food cake killed Babish each time

  • yum!! pink cake

  • Lol

  • Angel fruit cake from snoopy?

  • A tip -- you should sort of be able to pour the batter when you're done with it. It should hold enough viscosity not to just drizzle right in, but you shouldn't need to rely THAT heavily on a spatula to get it in the pan.

  • Uh, oh!!! You're not supposed to use a non-stick pan! Angel food cake 101!

  • Wish i watched the full video before i followed the first recipe

  • 😂 My mother tells me how she learned from her mother to put in cream of tarter. I showed her the deja vu cake and she is all "I told you so." 😂

  • The krusty crab pizzaThe krusty crab pizzaThe krusty crab pizzaThe krusty crab pizzaThe krusty crab pizzaThe krusty crab pizzaThe krusty crab pizza

  • Why does it look like a giant pink upsidedown plastic cup

  • "The cake was a lie"

  • Oh hey I have that mixer

  • music in background is to loud

  • That thumbnail is gold

  • I thought the alarm clock thing at the end was totally unnecessary so I've disliked this vid. Usually I like your stuff.

  • That thumbnail I'm-

  • I don;t like smashing the clock part

  • Whisked with a normal size whisk was a disaster.

  • Nice

  • The place where the movie Groundhog Day was filmed is fairly close to where I live and one groundhog day comes around they always make a huge deal out of it and you can go to the diner from that scene they also have a fairly cheap movie theater that lets you get free refills for popcorn so that’s where my family goes to the theaters. They also have an opera house and what used to be a jail but now they took it and renovated it so it’s a lot nicer and made it into a restaurant so you can eat in a jail cell (it is Woodstock IL if anyone is wondering)

  • Ayo this video released on my 20th bday

  • u travelled in time

  • Bill Murray being Bill Murray 😂 What beverage would y'all say goes well with Angel Food Cake?

    • The drink from the movie was sweet vermouth on the rocks with a twist, so maybe go with that until we have a better idea?

  • 7:15 this is why I keep my fiance around

  • Let's gooo

  • I came to see babish shove cake into his mouth

  • As soon as he almost finished the cake and then half the video was still left I knew exactly what was coming.

  • Is it just me who thinks the cake in the clip is legitimately just frosting?

  • Are we sure this isn't just a pav?

  • Next groundhog day upload a 10h version of the video that is an actual loop

  • Raspberry babingka from deuce bigalow male gigalow!!!!

  • He hit the clock so hard it went to 7

  • I’m pretty sure it was whipped cream mixed with preserved cherry juice. That’s how my grandma and dad made it but I could be wrong.

  • 4:32 *so this is the power of Gold Experience Requiem.*

  • So many opportunities for "around the outside, around the outside"

  • Fun fact: Bill Murray was stuck in the loop for more than 33 years

  • oh man, love your videdos

  • Tiny whisk needs to be on merch.

  • (Obviously I've never watched Groundhog's Day lol) Dude from the video in the beginning: *Shoves whole slice of cake in mouth* Me: *You dare oppose me, mortal?*

  • I have one of those clocks; they're built to withstand indirect nuclear strikes; seriously, the one I have is, like, 40 years old, and it still works just fine.

  • I have the first half of groundhog day commited to memory

  • I love these baking videos
