Just Sweet Enough Buttermilk Bundt Cake

I like Bundt cakes. They are pretty and decorative and need no fancy adornments. A drizzle of a simple glaze is all that’s needed for most Bundt cakes to be company perfect.

I’ve made this Bundt cake for years. It’s not too sweet. In fact, it’s just sweet enough to stand on […]

For Today’s Tea – Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

Just before lunch Monday, I mixed up a batch of Lemon Poppy Seed Scones. They mix up and bake quickly. I left these to cool on the stove top until after lunch, and then placed them on a pretty tray, ready for our mid-afternoon tea and read aloud time. Made from whole wheat flour […]

Thelma’s Berry (Or Any Fruit) Cobbler Recipe

I have a small cookbook. There are only a couple of dozen recipes in it, but they were all written out by my mom. I’m sure her intention was to fill this little recipe book with all of her wonderful recipes, some of which she was famous for; but she never finished the task. I […]

Grandma’s Gingerbread Cake

This is a very dark, moist and delicious gingerbread cake. It’s not at all like the light, sugary versions you would buy in a mix; but it’s a heartier, even spicier cake. The grandbabies gobbled it right up with a cup of cold milk, and some of the adults (I’m not naming names) had seconds! […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Another Sunday morning coffee cake from our recipe box! This coffee cake has a lovely texture, and is especially moist, from the cup of sour cream. The sweet, nutty topping adds a nice crunch.


Topping: 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 cup sugar 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or […]
