Bakesale Betty, finally we’ve met! We must be the only ones who hadn’t been to the infamous Bakesale Betty in Oakland. You order at the counter. Get a Chicken Sandwich or Salad, a lemon smoothie, and chocolate chip or molasses cookies! Then you grab an ironing board out front and sit on a stool to chow down! Their slaw is great. Our friend Michele told us that their slaw recipe had been published online and we found it! Check out the photographs above to see just how fine you need to chop the slaw ingredients. You can even watch a video on how to make the Cole Slaw.
