We tried to decide what was the best route to take on getting through this ENTIRE cookbook. We Don't know about you, but have you ever tried to cook EVERY recipe in any cookbook you've bought? The first and most natural order was simply... in order. As fate would have it, we needed a vanilla cake to go with berries for dinner with friends. Well, the Silver Cake from Alabama fit the need, but not the order... so of course we choose "need" over "want" (he he he).
Our first lesson learned was that just because it says non-stck, doesn't mean it won't stick!!! And yes, we sprayed it with PAM, only to find that wasn't good either.( Memories of my grandmother using Crisco and flour came back to me and WILL be used next go round.) So there were several lessons learned here... but most importantly, "When life hands you broken cake, Make a Trifle"!
And no the pictures didn't turn out that great either... but the taste was pretty good! Would we make this one again, probably not. Did we have a great time, learn lessons and plan to continue this adventure? Most definitely!!!
