Have I ever told you that I love to bake? Cakes, scones, cookies, pies, breads, I love making at all. This weekend I got hungry for a good old fashioned cake. Remember the cakes they make in Pollyanna? Big four layer cakes? When you get hungry for a real, down home cake the boxed variety just will not do.
You have to pull out the big guns and get your mixing bowl down. This cake is called a 1-2-3-4 Cake and the recipe was right on the back of the cake flour box. We topped it off with a chocolate buttercream frosting. Boy was it ever good. When you make your own buttercream it is not too sweet.
This cake makes a good breakfast too with a cold glass of milk. Last week I was baking something to take somewhere and my boys were so excited I was baking something. So, this was for them, just because! Do you ever bake something fun for your family just because you love em'?
