Hmmmm Cake :)

I took this recipe and gave it a small makeover lol!!!!

4 eggs.......I used "Egg Replacer"......our Chickens have stopped laying for the winter and I just can't bring myself to buy any eggs at the store!!
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup whole milk........Almond Milk
1/4 cup butter (lightly salted)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

1. Beat eggs in large mixing bowl with paddle attachment for 4 minutes.  Do not skip this step!

2. Add sugar, and continue beating for another 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and stir on low until just combined.

3. In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients.  Add to eggs and sugar on low speed until just combined.

4. In a saucepan, heat milk and butter on low heat just until butter is melted.  Add to batter, beat just until combined.

5. Pour into two greased and floured 8" round cake pans.

6. Bake at 325 until the middle springs back when touched, or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let stand in pans for 10 minutes. Then turn out onto wire cooling racks and cool completely.

Hint: Cakes are close to being done when you start to smell them.....for our oven it is right about 25 minutes! 


For the frosting I used this recipe :)


1/2 cup whole strawberries.......Winter = No Strawberries or at least none I want :) So Strawberry Jam was my substitute!!!!
1 stick unsalted butter, firm and slightly cold
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese, slightly cold
1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract.....didn't even know they made clear.....it's just "regular" ole Vanilla!
22 ounces of confectioners’ sugar (approximately 1.4 pounds)......2.75 cups.
Method I mixed all the ingredients together with using my hand mixer!!
