I remember growing up my grandmother would always make her famous Butter Cake with Butter Icing. It was so yummy, and my mom has been stashing the recipe’s for years, lol. I know why she has done it. When all of us left home it was hard for her to let go. I think part of her was glad to have her time with my father, but she’s still mom and I cannot imagine how hard it is to let go and accept the fact that your children are all grown up. I know she gets a kick out of doing certain things for us. Cooking is one of them, you know nobody cooks better than mom and grandma.
Once my grandmother passed away, my mother took over making the desserts and dishes Granny used to make. I have been trying for years to get her to share the recipe’s with me. Well about twenty years later and she finally broke. Yepie, I made a Butter Cake the other day… Still not as good as Granny’s but with some practice I will have it down.
My husband loves to wait and have it for breakfast with a cup of coffee. Not sure, he says it’s great but then again he enjoys coffee. If you’re a coffee drinking it might be something worth trying.
