Stack Cake

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 every penny.   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.

You all hear me talk about sitting on the green swing.  Well, this is the view from it.  As you can tell, there is lots of shade there, which is one of the reasons I love it.

This is a little bit closer view of the pond.  See all the geese.  Our pond has had lots of activity all summer.

A picture of the house as you turn down the driveway.  To the left of the yard is the pond.  Well, the yogurt turned out great.  I think it is the best homemade yogurt I have ever made.  I definitely will be making more.  Also, the plum juice was very good.  We enjoyed a cold glass of it this morning with our breakfast.  I went to help Hubby today and the girls spent the day with the Horn’s.  They had a great time.   Temperatures here are still nice-upper 70’s today with a good wind.  I hope you all enjoy your evening and God bless.
