Well supper is over, belly is full, dishes are done. What should I do now with the rest of my evening? Pester you, sounds like fun doesn’t it? Well, I really won’t, but I am going to be nosy.
I am curious about who lives near me. I know some of you live out of the country, but does anyone live near me in Kentucky? I know you do Marilyn!!!! LOL
Old-Fashion Recipes from my area
Recipe from Nancy Palmer Bledsoe – Am a Kentuckian transplanted to TN. Here is my grandmother Cole’s
recipe for OLD FASHIONED STACK CAKE. She made it sometime between
Thanksgiving and Christmas and kept it in a lard can on the back porch.
It was delicious for Christmas Dinner. She always used cooked apples
that she dried. I have used applesauce, but not as good. 1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, well beaten
1/3 cup molasses
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 1/2 cups flour
2 ts. baking powder
1/2 ts soda
1 ts. vanilla
1 ts. ginger Cream sugar and shortening. Add egg, molasses and buttermilk. Sift
flour, baking powder, soda and ginger. Add to creamed mixture , mix
well. It makes a dough. Add enough flour to roll as thin as pie crust.
Cut to fit 9 inch pan or heavy skillet. Makes about 5-6 layers. Bake
10-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
When cool, stack with highly spiced
(I use cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg) cooked dried apples, sweetened to
taste. Let it stand at least 24 hours.
This freezes well, too
