Years ago I worked at Fabricut. It was a place where there were curtains, drapes and bedspreads sewn. Sears, J. C. Penny's and others bought the items.To make a long story shorter, once a week all the ladies would bring a pre-determined dish for lunch. This cake was served at luncheon. It was called Dr. Birds cake. Had to have the recipe, and so happy I did. It has been a family favorite for years.
A not a lot of work recipe, but is very good and very moist.
Pour batter into 3 greased and floured 9 inch round cakepans.( Okay to use large oblong cake pan.) I like at least 2 layers. Delicious either way.
1/2 cup softened butter
8 oz softened cream cheese
one 16 oz pkg. powdered sugar, sifted
1 tsp vanilla
Cream butter and cream cheese. Gradually add pow. sugar, beating till light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Makes enough for one 3 layer cake.
