Tasty 1.2

I started the great Sour Cream Pound Cake bake marathon Thursday night...the first cake I make is always so exciting, it fills the house with an amazing aroma and will make your toes curl. It's always hard to decide who gets the first cake...this year was Angie & Dave...I wonder what they thought of it?

Normally I don't make a cake for us until the very end and some years we don't actually get one to eat but this year I got a dozen duck eggs from my farmers market lady and had to give them a try, more on that in a bit. So I came home from work tonight and managed to get a cake in the oven before we sat down for our normal Saturday night ritual.

So what do you think?
 

I have to say..it is as tasty as it looks...I just wish computer screens had scratch & sniff...y'all would be in heaven!



A few tips on the cake. I don't sift the flour but fluff it with a spoon as I measure it out, add all the dry ingredients together while you are creaming the butter & sugar together. To the creamed butter/sugar add the eggs, one at a time just till blended, don't over mix or your cake will be chewy. Once I've added the sour cream after the eggs I add the flour mixture, last in the mix the vanilla. I do bake it in a bundt cake pan, not one of the fancy ones but one I borrowed from my mother 25 years ago...tall sides and is perfect for this cake..but I wonder..do you think my mother misses her pan? 

On the vanilla..I only..and I mean ONLY use Penzeys vanilla ... it is da bomb! 

Duck Eggs...the yokes are richer in color and the whites are thicker so it made for a denser cake. The cake is still very tasty but I can tell a difference, so the rest of the cakes will be done with good old chicken eggs.

This recipe came from a dear friend, Robbie, and over the years of making it I think of her often and wonder if she is still making them or if she has passed the recipe down to her daughters.

So there you have it...give it a try and let me know what you think.

Until Next Time

  1. I don't think your mom misses the pan one little bit. It's a great shape for the cake. :)

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind

Weather

Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
