Etymology of “From Scratch”

Whenever we hear the term “made from scratch,” our tummies begin to rumble because we know that food “made from scratch” will be good quality and delicious, especially if it’s made by Grandma. But have you ever wondered where the phrase “from scratch” came from?  In our modern definition of the phrase, it means that a meal was cooked with the fundamental ingredients all the way to the finished dish instead of, say, just adding water or an egg to a pre-packaged mix. You may be surprised at where the phrase originated. The scratch was actually the name of a mark at the center of a ring or stage where men would wrestle or fight one another. If a man could not get to the scratch fast enough, he would be pronounced the loser. In later years, the scratch transitioned to being the starting line of a race where the runner had neither advantage nor handicap. In terms of cooking, if someone were to make a recipe from scratch, he or she would have no advantage by starting out with just the essential ingredients and from the very beginning of the recipe.

This looks like the perfect companion to a morning cup of coffee! I love that the cinnamon nut filling is hidden in the middle. My mom loves Bundt pan desserts, so I'll have to make her this for Mother's Day!

Oh my Gosh! This Sock It to Me Cake from Scratch is the best I have ever had! I had to spice it up a bit and added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the cake batter and it came out great! Even my "I don't like nuts" daughter ate 2 slices of this cake. This is a great recipe that I have saved and will make again. I have a few different shaped bunt pans and will try them. Such a great tasting home made cake. Try it, you'll like it. Thank you for sharing this free recipe.

I made this cake for a Holiday party at work. Even though there were several dessert choices, mine was one of the few that was almost completely eaten. I was able to watch a couple people eat the cake and they each seemed to enjoy it. I'm sure I'll make it again and when I do, I'll have to make sure the nut filling is all in the middle of the cake batter - mine oozed out a little bit. But it was still delicious!
