Christopher had his first birthday yesterday. I wanted to make him a cake that I wouldn’t feel ‘bad’ about feeding him. I’m not much of a baker so making a cake is a bit of challenge even with a proven recipe. You would think I would just find a recipe ‘good enough’ and be happy, right. HA. What fun would that be?
I found this recipe online and adapted it. The recipe was for a 9 inch round cake pan and I wanted to make mine in a 9×13 so I had to take that into account too. The end results were surprisingly good. It was very moist, had good texture and a different but good flavor. Sarah at Heart of Cooking posted a Cream Cheese Frosting that was the perfect finish for it.
