You have no idea how long I have been looking for the stack cake recipe. My aunt Minnie(more like my granny) made these using her dried apples. I have friends who have ancient apple trees and make apple butter for me. I just got a dehydrator and wanted so bad to make the dried apple stack cakes like my Aunt Minnie. Now I can!! My friend got me my own cookbook called Butter, bacon and grease. "the best from the collection of George Taylor's recipes". (I am a good ole country cook and my friends love it)You have made it possible to add to it a recipe I have been looking for forever.
I love your Aunt Bett adventures! Keep the articles coming. Now to find an old fashion Jam cake recipe made with blackberry jam and I will be a happy camper.
Take care my friend
If you come to the ORV RU you will get to have a bite of it! I would love to have your grandmother's jam cake recipe. My sister had all my mother's old fashion recipes and some how lost them all. She finally fessed up a couple of Christmas's back. She made a jam cake and I knew it wasn't the right taste. It was good, but not mom's. Mom made her's and would cover it and let it set for about a week. I think she also drizzled a little rum on it. The top of cake would be like an icing it would have that gooey texture. You are a great writer. I love your description of things. I could feel the heat from the clothes and the hum of the bees in your article. By the way. I have 4 or 5 types of Monardia/bee balm if you ever want some. Red, lavender, purple, pink and the wild type we call burgamont(sp) I also have the alba/white in winter sown jugs thats coming up nicely.
See ya on the journey and keep the articles coming!!
