If I close my eyes tight enough I can almost taste and smell Grandma’s
homemade vanilla cake.
Sometimes it had caramel frosting and other times chocolate.
You remember those days, when the kitchen was infused with homemade
goodies and all of them from scratch, because that is just how it was.
Some say simple, well my oh my, I say heavenly.
I made this cake just a week or so ago and it was oh so yummy!
With just a few basic ingredients, and a little stirring them all together
you can be serving this by dinner time,
if it lasts until then, which it probably won’t.
But I don’t really think that is a bad thing, do you?
Did I ever tell you about my Momma having a slice of cake or a warm
cinnamon roll waiting for me when I got off the school bus?
Well, she did, and a glass of milk, then it was time to run outside and play.
We all ate well, loved ferociously and played outside until completely
Winter time included, Mom always insisted on plenty of fresh air and lots
and lots of layers of clothing which became heavy and sodden from the wet
She would pull them off a me like I was a banana being peeled, as I
squealed and complained.
Then it was time to sit down at the dinner table set for three,
Mom, Dad and me
and top off the most delicious meal with yes you know…
another slice of cake…
Well, you get the picture, loving her family was all done with food prepared
with her sweet hands, in her tiny kitchen with yellow curtains that framed
each window over the worn porcelain sink.
And here is the recipe for you to make-it is a moist and comforting cake.
Please bake in a 350 degree oven and check the last few minutes of baking,
an over baked cake is not a good cake-to me.
I made the little truffle balls out of melted semi-sweet chocolate chips with
about a teaspoon of vanilla and then rolled them in powdered sugar and
tossed them in sprinkles, just to spruce up the cake a bit.
