Best Cake Recipe Ever!

I have a real treat to share with you today!

I am generously sharing with you the recipe of my most favorite cake in the whole entire world.  So good thing you stopped by today. 😀

It is a family recipe passed down from my husband’s side of the family.   I am sure it will soon be one of your family’s favorite as well.  Before I continue, I want to say “Hi!” to my Mother & Father-In-Law who are finally online.  I’m glad they can see what we’re up too since I don’t use snail mail much anymore.  Hope you don’t mind me sharing our recipe with everyone. 😉

Above shown are the family cookbook of recipes and the cook book my Mother-In-Law made for my husband to take on his mission for our church {when he was 19.}  Looks like Mom inherited the recipe from Aunt Doris.

Here is a close up of the front of the small (wire post bound index) cook book my Mother-In-Law made him.  Isn’t it cute?!  DH continues to cook recipes from this book to this day.

On to the recipe:

Few pointers and helpful hints…you can use another brand of cake mix to make this.  However, it is not as good.  I made this cake recently using another brand of cake mix.  It was the only one I had in the house and I wanted to make the cake while my friends were visiting from out of state.  My friends, who had never had it before, loved it.  It wasn’t bad, but my kids & I could tell a difference.  I am not being paid to advertise Duncan Hines.  {I should have contacted the company, though!  Oh well, enjoy this free publicity Duncan Hines}  The same weekend my friends came to visit, my husband was visiting his home town for his 25 year high school reunion.  He stayed with his parents and guess what my Mother-In-Law sent home with him?  Yes, this cake.  So even though we had some of the cake I had made with the other brand, my kids ate my Mom’s first.  It didn’t hurt my feelings because I could tell the difference. 😉

To all of my local Church friends: I call DIBS on this recipe for the cookbook we are compiling recipes for.  It’s the ONLY recipe I contributed to the cookbook. 😀  Thanks!

{By the way, this is only the 2nd post I have ever written about food.  Read the other one about flour tortillas HERE.}
