That is one of my favorite terms of endearment!
There is something so fun and special about the celebration of an anticipated blessing!
This was my creation for a co-worker with
a little one on the way …
I made this a double layer 9x 13 cake. The design wasn’t perfect…but it was fun to make and the taste was perfection! This is one of my favorite cakes and now it’s one of Poppy’s new faves as well. So simple but…so so good!
I have only a few cake recipes that are not completely from scratch…as in…
you use a cake mix in the mix!
But this is one of those cakes and it is nothing to be ashamed of! It gets a thumbs up and ‘oh I could eat the whole cake’ responses….
every time I make it!
Very easy to make…
I use one Duncan Hines ‘Signature recipe’ French Vanilla cake mix
one cup sour cream
4 lightly beaten eggs
and 3/4 cup vegetable oil.
Mix by hand and pour into a lightly greased and floured 9 x 13 pan.
In a small bowl…
mix together 1 cup brown sugar and 1 T. cinnamon
Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the top of the cake batter. Swirl / slice a knife back and forth until the sugar mixture is ‘swirled’ throughout. Be careful not to overmix.
Bake at 325 for 40 minutes or until cake springs back lightly…or golden.
When cake is cool…
Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar (or more if needed for consistency)
1 – 2 teaspoons vanilla
For a printable version….
‘Til we meet again…
May you experience the sweetness of anticipated blessings,
terms of endearment…
And eat cake!
