A friend requested this easy recipe for a homemade cake..

 

Tammy....Here it is..

 

The 1-2-3-4 recipe is one that Mother used to use all the time, as easy as a cake mix...but better

 

1 stick of butter

1 cup of sugar

3 eggs

2 1/2 to 3 cups of flour (self rising)

3/4 cup to 1 cup of milk

1 tsp vanilla

************

Cream the sugar and butter together and add eggs 1 at a time mixing after each one.

begin to put in flour and alternate with the milk...until you have a well mixed batter that is rather stiff..

 

pour into a 9 x 13 pan..I prefer glass

 

and cook for about 40 to 45 minutes. test with a broom straw. if you put in and it comes out clean...it is ready.

 

****************

 

Icing is 1/2 stick of butter

powdered sugar

6 tsp of cocoa..

Milk..

vanilla

 

cream butter and powdered sugar and cocoa adding milk slowly... Mix well and until the icing can keep its shape or design with the mixer.

Yummy.....

Seems easy enough.  My mom always made cakes from scratch and I couldn't wait for them to come out of the oven.
