It’s Monday-day in the kitchen with the kids.
I have a bunch of icing in the freezer from my cake decorating classes that needs to be used.
And I still have a friend’s church cookbook. I want to try a few more of the recipes before I give it back.
I find just the recipe.
Here are the ingredients listed in the cookbook:
1 1/4 c. plain flour
1 1/4 c. self rising flour
1 c. Crisco
2 c. sugar
1 c. sweet milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Ok, plain flour, I assume all-purpose flour.
Sweet milk, I have to think about this. What are they talking about? I decide they must mean sweetened condensed milk.
The directions are short and sweet. Mix all ingredients well, bake, blah, blah, blah….
So with Cassie behind the whisk and other utensils and Grace holding the camera, off we go….
I’m still mourning the loss of my hand mixer, and haven’t replaced it yet, so we are mixing everything by hand. It’s how they did it on “Little House on the Prairie” and everything looked good on that show.
I will go back to the kitchen and try the recipe the right way.
Now that I know that “sweet milk” is whole milk.
And give full credit for the recipe.
Sometimes it’s a really good thing when you make a mistake.
This was one of them.
And if you think this was too many pictures….

you got off easy.
