I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Vanilla Butter Cake

This classic butter cake needs no sugary frosting. It's perfect with tea after dinner or as a late night snack. Maybe even a little slice at breakfast time?!


1 cup butter, at room temperature

1  1/2 cups brown sugar

4 eggs

2 tbsps vanilla (yes tablespoons!)

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup milk

icing sugar for dusting

Found this recipe on the back of the Watkins pure vanilla extract.

In a large mixer bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar for 3 minutes. Then add the eggs, one at a time, along with the vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and add 1/2 to the wet ingredients. Slowly add the milk and the rest of the flour mixture. Mix well.
Grease and flour a 12 cup/2.8L bundt pan and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes.

Sit pan on rack for 15 minutes before releasing it to cool completely. Finally give it a nice dusting of icing sugar.

Serves 12-16
