Shoo-Fly Cake


It's that time if year again when we get to bake from a new book! This years winner was "Vintage Cakes" by Julie Richardson.


Our first selection was "Shoo-Fly Cake"! Never made one before, or heard if it. I honestly didn't think my family was going to like this one. Was I ever wrong! We all had a slice while its was warm, I honestly didn't think it was anything special. But the next day for some reason it tasted delicious! Sometimes for some reason some cakes are just better the next day. I guess just letting the cake rest and completely cool lets the flavors fully develop. The cake was gone the next morning my kids devoured it! I'm glad I really enjoyed the cake myself.

So glad you all enjoyed it! My girls loved it too! I would've thought it's not a "kid friendly" cake but I was wrong! :) I am so glad I was wrong! :)

You're right, sometimes letting a cake sit out can really bring out all the nice flavors. I'm glad it was a success for you :)

Your cake looks yummy. I will have to try mine again since I wasn't a big fan of it on the first day.
