I want to share with you guys a recipe that I was able to glean from my mom this past weekend. It's a cake she use to make all the time for dessert and was definitely a great motivation to finish the food on our plates. We all loved this simple cake as kids and after making it for the first time this weekend I remembered why it was always a favorit.
It also turns out Jonathan grew up with this cake too but instead called it Lazy Daisy Cake. Which, after googling it, I've discovered that it's the correct name but I refuse to call it any thing other than what I grew up with. So, with no further adieu here is the delicious recipe for Lazie Dorie Cake.
