Yesterday under extreme pressure due to a looming evening work event, I was able to complete a massive amount of work fast. I was able to drive home 30 miles, feed my child a Popsicle
for and dinner, work out, cook myself dinner, empty the dishwasher, then reload the dishwasher all in one hour and 45 minutes.
Who knew I could do it that fast, please don’t tell anyone. My husband could obviously read this but him reading this is like me being interested in his golf score - so I think I’m safe.
Speaking of being safe, liking this cake is surely a safe bet. I liked it so much I sampled about half of it in 2 days. I also made those twix bars on the same weekend so you can imagine that it was a fierce battle for my attention…I would call it tie in all honesty, the only loser = my pants.
On the subject of pants, I have noticed a few things.
1. Stacy and Clinton do not lie, get those puppies altered.
2. Jeans exist to make us crazy in dressing rooms, well jeans and bikini’s..OK maybe bikini’s are one step in front of jeans.
3. Bra’s also make me crazy in dressing rooms, glad I don't have to put them back on the hangar right because that's brain surgery for sure.
4. I hate limits in dressing rooms
5. Don’t eat this cake and then try on clothes in a dressing room
There now you know how I feel about pants…speaking of feelings have I told you about my demanding kitties lately? I feel like they are playing games with me. Just this morning no matter which way I moved I had one just under my feet and was on the verge of tripping. How does this happen? It’s like when you’re walking down a hallway and start dancing back and forth with the person walking straight at you. Why is it as soon as your break left…they do too, then right, then left, then right?
The other cat kept demanding fresh sink water while I was brushing, seriously dude there is a water bowl downstairs…like right next to your stinky cat food. I will not, I repeat will not be the sink turner on person for you. Let me say that in a language you understand “meow , meowwww, umm meow”.
Now let me talk to your food lovers in a language you understand, on to the recipe!
Delightfully borrowed with itty bitty changes from AllRecipes
• 1 cup butter
• 1 cup water
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 2 cups white sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 cup sour cream
• 1 tablespoon of Vanilla extract
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 cup butter
• 1/4 cup milk
• 4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
• Sprinkles (NOT optional)
In a large saucepan, bring 1 cup butter or margarine and water to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, 1 tablespoon Vanilla extract, salt, and baking soda until smooth. Pour batter into a greased 10 x 15 x 1 inch baking pan.
Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20 to 22 minutes, or until cake is golden brown and tests done. Cool for 20 minutes.
For the Icing
Combine 1/2 cup butter or margarine and milk in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Mix in sugar and 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract. Spread frosting over warm cake. The icing will set up quickly, so spread fast. Dot with Sprinkles.
Need something fun for kidlets? I cut out little squares and placed them on straws and handed over a tall glass of milk with them. Kids can eat the small square of cake then sip their milk from the straw the cake was on. Easy peasy.
