Sometimes there are cakes that are good without all the frosting. Don’t get me wrong, I love cake with frosting but there are days when I like something with a little less sweetness to it. Those are the days when a butter cake is a must!
When I make butter cake it goes FAST! You would think the kids would turn their noses up at a cake without frosting but they know me too well. They know I love to make food that tastes good so they weren’t hesitant to ask for a piece.
