cathy's Story

When my grandmother passed, I received all of her cookbooks. One has in her writing "Oldest and Best" and the inscription " The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till it was all leavened. Matt.13:33. The book is tattered all around the edges, stained and has notes and writings all throughout. It is my favorite recipe book. This recipe was handed down through generations from this book.

Directions Step-By-Step

Cream butter and sugar very well - this is the secret to the success of the cake. Then reduce speed on the mixer and add eggs, one at a time. Add flavoring, then flour a little at a time. Put in cold oven; turn on oven to 300 degrees and bake 1 hour or until spaghetti noodle stuck into center of cake comes out clean.
