The Easiest Cake Recipe Ever

This week, I’m going to have a little fun with Tasty Tuesdays. I’m going to give you my mom’s cake recipe.

But first, I need to give you a little background…

Years ago, my sister-in-law threw me a bridal shower. When she sent out invitations, she included 2 blank recipe cards and asked that my family and friends fill them out with their favorite recipes. So I was lucky enough to get my friend Lisa’s famous sangria recipe. And my friend Sandy’s yummy orange and chocolate chip scone recipe. And a recipe from my sister-in-law’s sister-in-law for the best peanut butter balls you’ve ever tasted.

And my mom gave me her cake recipe. Here is the actual recipe card:


Fortunately, my sisters and I inherited our cooking abilities from our grandma (my dad’s mom).

In mom’s defense, she also gave me her world famous, or at least declared famous by friends and family, potato salad recipe. Though I can’t share that one. Family secrets, you know.

See, I told you I was going to have some fun with this one!

My twins are a year old today! I wrote a happy birthday post to them. You can check it out here!
