|I'm ashamed, so very ashamed. I've been gone for too long, and I've missed my blog so much. So much has been going on I wouldn't even know where to begin so I'll skip it all. But with all the busy-ness & goings on as of late, I'm happy to report that life is fine - great actually, just extremely busy. Just know that I've missed y'all terribly and I hope to be back to blogging on a much more regular basis. |
My shame isn't that I've been gone for so long, it's that I consumed an entire cake all on my own, minus a few bites that crossed the lips of my Big Bad Dad. A while back the thought crossed my mind of this cake my Nana used to make when I was younger, it was actually more like a cobbler than a cake - a layer of cherry pie filling, a layer of crushed pineapple then a sprinkling of yellow cake mix. So I brought out my treasured cookbook filled with all her handwritten notes and trusted recipes to find her recipe for "Dump Cake". Yes, I said it- Dump Cake. I was craving something called Dump Cake, can you believe it? Nana was anything, but white trash, but that's certainly what this recipe screams to me, so I've renamed it "White Trash Wedding Cake" because I simply can't bear to eat something called "Dump Cake".
And I have to admit, I enjoyed every calorie-filled morsel of that cake, I won't deny that. I did an internet search because I thought I remembered pecans and coconut in the cake, but wasn't sure. Well I found umpteen different slight variations of the recipe, I even saw a chocolate version. Stay tuned, I might have to give that a try soon!
