If you haven't heard of or made "wacky cake" before, don't let the strange combo of ingredients scare you away. Trust me, it will be one of the most moist and delicious cakes you'll ever have! Unlike traditional wacky cake, this recipe makes a wonderful and refreshing lemon cake rather than a chocolate cake. Personally, I think it's the perfect summer dessert!
These cookies are soft and delicious! I found this recipe in a cookbook titled "Treasured Recipes - The Ladies of Sacred Heart" (Houston, Texas). The original recipe said it makes 6 dozen, but I think it only makes 2-3 dozen.
I found this recipe in the March ’06 Good Housekeeping Magazine and had to try it immediately! We all loved it! I made a few minor changes to the frosting: I used 4 cups sugar, 8 oz. cream cheese, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and I also added some grated lemon peel (maybe 1 tsp.) Both cake and frosting were deliciously lemony! :)
A rich lemony, buttery filling--this is superb eaten as a pudding, or in a pie (see tip for making pie)! Recipe was passed down to a Southern Living Editor from her late mother, Louise Floyd of Potter's Station, Alabama. Thank you Ms. Floyd, for sharing this lovely recipe with us!
If you like lemon, you're going to love this cake! Saw this recipe being made by the Barefoot Contessa on FoodTV and just had to have it. Not being overly experienced, I was a bit intimidated by the recipe. However, it is not very hard, looks great and the taste is incredible! Cook time does not include time for the cakes to cool.
I quickly wrote the ingredients and directions down as these were being prepared on a local television program. I believe it was Martha Stewart's Everyday Living. Posted here as they look delicious and I don't want to lose the recipe! Hope you enjoy.
Only try these if you love lemon as they are pretty intense. I used the grater on the zest of one lemon and it was no where near 1-2 tbs but I think it was plenty. We liked them but my son preferred his without the glaze.
I'd like to try the glaze with confectioners sugar and try the muffins with vanilla yogurt some time.
