I made a cake today from an old recipe book my mom had. It was printed in a little paper back book from an old Catholic Church somewhere in the Detroit area. (The cover of the book fell off years ago.) The cake plate and cover were Jan's mothers. A cover honors the cake...I hope this tradition is carried on.
The cake has lots of sour cream and egg whites. This is our Easter white cake..... Happy Easter!
