killed my mixer. :-)
This is another recipe that has been in our family for years. Along with the Banana Cake, it shares the spotlight for birthday celebrations. It's another very simple recipe that calls for cake mix and pudding mix, and a generous amount of Cream Sherry :-) If you don't have any Cream Sherry on hand, this cake and the Chocolate Sherry Cream Bars are great reasons to go buy some.
This cake has a strong sherry flavor (obviously) and is tender and moist, yet firm enough to just slice and eat while holding it in your hand. I've never done that myself, just sayin' you COULD if you wanted to...
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 pkg (3.5 oz) lemon pudding mix
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup Cream Sherry
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp vanilla
1 pinch nutmeg
Powdered Sugar for dusting on top
Preheat oven to 350-F. Grease and flour a bundt or tube pan (or use PAM cooking spray for baking).
Put everything in a mixing bowl and beat for 5 minutes. That's it. Pour batter into pan and bake for 45-50 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. Invert on wire rack to cool completely, then shake some powdered sugar on the top.
Why This Blog?
Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.
I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.
These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.
I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!
