Lazy Day Cake
During the Summer months I hang the laundry out on the lines. I actually love doing it. There’s nothing like the smell of clean sheets air dried on the line. My dryer went on the fritz about a week ago and I haven’t found anybody who works on gas dryers to fix it.
Now normally with my clothes lines, that wouldn’t bother me. But it’s rained here every day for at least a month, or maybe it just feels that way. I spent the day running back and forth between the washer and the clothes lines before… yes you guessed it, another storm came rolling in.
As busy as I was, I found the time to make this glorious Lazy Day Cake. You’ve got to taste it to believe it. There’s cream and butter in the batter as well as in the topping. It rises up nice and tall with a fluffy tender texture.
My son said the topping tasted like…”You know those little things with pecans that taste like caramel”. Pralines , “Yes those”. You could serve this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a wonderful summer treat. Even if your not having a lazy day , this old fashioned cake is easy to make and absolutely delicious. Enjoy!
