We named it 'the bastard' cake.... - the cake without a recipe, measurements, etc.
So, after getting my mixer home, and even after a night spending too much time drinking to many drinks at the local watering hole, I get home and throw the ol' kitchenaid up on the counter that I just got and tell the girlfriend, "this is how you cream butter and suger" (because I learned recently, and she had made some cookies the other day and didn't do it right either). I threw in a stick of butter, mixed it to a paste, then threw in suger until I got the light fluffy stuff... from there I just kept throwing things in, not following any recipe, nor was I measureing anything at all. I tossed in two eggs, some baking soda, then milk, then some flour, then cococa... She thought I was crazy, but I didn't care, I was to tipsy to care, plus, even if it didn't turn out, the 50 cents I spent on the ingredients was worth it just to try out my new mixer. I tossed the 'batter' in a pan, baked for a while, brought it out, tasted it... and it actually worked great!!! ( although it was a little too rich). She was amazed... and when she asked what do I call it, I told her, it's 'the bastard cake' (because it didn't have a recipe, measurements, etc).
