Hello! This week’s recipe will take you back many years.
I think we all have made this one a few times. It always turns out fast, and it’s so good.
I love the fact you can put the icing on it as soon as it comes out of the oven, and it just melts in to make it wonderful.
I have always turned to this cake recipe when I wanted a quick dessert with very little time to make it, not to mention it has ingredients that is on hand in many kitchens. I hope this one brings back some good memories for you.
I would also like to take a moment to say a special “thank you” to Ruthann Thompson who sent me a card telling me a very heartwarming story of one of my recipes. It made my day.
