My grandmothers recipe. My whole family loves it. She's been gone since 1984, and no one can make it quite like her. I can't make anything as good as she did, but because of the simplicity, I can get sorta close. This cake doesn't look the prettiest, but the flavor is good. Very sweet and 'juicy'. I hope that you all enjoy how easy and simple this is.

Ingredients

How to Make Elsie's Juicy Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare cake mix as directed on package. Allow to cool.
  2. "For the Juicy"
    Combine remaining ingredients in small saucepan. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium, continue stirring until all sugar is melted and the butter is melted. Allow to cool.
  3. "Juicing the Cake"
    Using a spoon, stab holes into the cake all over. I use the spoon to make like half moon shapes and give a little twist (without breaking the cake up too much). Do make sure that the spoon goes all the way to the bottom. Make at least 2-3 'half moons' for every piece of cake that will be cut. When the 'icing' has cooled, but still slightly warm, pour the icing over the cake to make it good and "Juicy".

    Slice and enjoy! AWESOME WITH COFFEE... Thanks Granny! Miss you!!
