While I usually use them as guidelines, I have to admit, I like to collect recipes!!!!I do know however that there are times when one really should completely follow a recipe.... or follow it as best they can! The best example of this is when you bake!
Recently I took a look through some of my dessert recipes and discovered one that I've had for quite a few years but have never made, not even once! I read it, stunned... One bowl cake!? Why have I not tried this sooner?! I am all about easy meals, easy desserts, easy breezy goodness.
So tonight I set to making it just after supper and here is the recipe to share with you! Think of your Grandma when I tell you to remember to sift your flour for better results! ha ha! However, as per my usual, if you can't sift than oh well, I'm sure your cake will turn out just fine!
