Before you head out the door for your (hopefully) sunny holiday weekend, don’t forget dessert. We love whipping up this cake for gatherings and potlucks. It’s easy to make, and the perfect throw together dessert when you want something simple and delicious. Serve it with fresh fruit and cream. It can be whipped, frozen, or in liquid form. I would love to try it with this crema catalina foam; doesn’t it sound posh?
Bring on summer.
brown sugar cake
from chelsea mahuika
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter/margarine, soft (we used coconut oil)
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk (any milk with juice of half a lemon)
splash of vanilla
Cut brown sugar, butter flour and salt together like pie dough, until pea sized crumbs. Set aside one cup.
With the rest of the mixture add soda, egg, milk and vanilla mixing well. Spread in 10×15 jelly pan. Sprinkle with rest of the crumb mixture. Bake 25 – 30 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven.
