Stack Cake

100_7205

It’s not very often I make two posts in one day, but I thought this was worth sharing. Tomorrow we will be going down to play with the boys while Jess has another doctor’s appointment. She asked me if I could make her a stack cake. This cake goes by different names. Some call it a stack cake, others a “lassie” cake (molasses). No matter what you call it, it is GOOD! In the mountains where I grew up, this cake was common at most all family get-togethers. It is not as common now, as the art of making them has all but disappeared. It took me many years of trial and error, but I finally got it. (I think, anyway.) These cakes are best eaten the next day. Most like them with a cold glass of buttermilk. In Grundy, these sell for $15.00-$20.00 and worth everypenny. The layers are thin and between them is a good amount of homemade applebutter. Well, I just wanted to show you all my accomplishment for the day. Just kidding, it didn’t take me all day to make it but it did take a long time to clean up afterward. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  2. My husband’s Mama makes this cake too. They call it Apple Stack Cake. It’s his favorite! He bought one home when he was up thee in August.

    Thanks for sharing. Yours looks great ;- )

  3. That looks scrumptious!:) I’ve never had one. We use to crumble up our cornbread and put it in buttermilk. I hope you enjoy the birthday party.

    Blessings,
