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 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.
