BASIC CAKE BATTER - Adapted from Woman's Day Web Site. There is a recipe posted already on RecipeZaar for Basic Cake Batter, but this is an adapted version sent to me by my Aunt Elora. It turns out very well; I like it better than the original.
This is the cake I've reserved all through 2002, just to welcome 2003! My guests are in for a treat and can you imagine, I've waited the whole year long to post this:) Try it! It lives up to its name, IMO.
I never seem to have butter softened to the right temperature when I want to make coffee cake, so I finally asked my mom for her recipe, and it doesn't require any softened butter, just oil, so it is a breeze to make. It is easy to get the consistency of the crumb topping just right. You could substitute other types of nuts if you wanted.
This is a super easy recipe for when you want something impressive for Sunday morning breakfast or brunch. For the pancake mix, use a brand such as Aunt Jemima that is made with milk and eggs. It will ensure that the texture is nice and fluffy. This is wonderful served with maple syrup and a dollop of whipped cream.
Awesome flavors!!! If you are a strawberry lover, this one is for you! A rich creamy texture to enjoy. The nuts are optional, but does add to flavor combination. If used, chopped pecans are recommended.
You'll love this perfect chocolicious little pound cake. It really fits the bill when you're having a chocolate attack and don't need a full size cake. Serve it with whipped cream and chocolate sauce... yum! This doubles very nicely when you need a little more but still don't need a big dessert. When doubling, don't double the baking soda, just leave it at 1/8 teaspoon.
