Farm Tour

Thanks to everyone that came out to the farm tour this weekend.  It was a beautiful afternoon.

We had a great time meeting so many of you and sharing our farm with you!

Strawberries were enjoyed by all, especially this little sweetie!
Mounds of strawberries, cake, and whipped cream were eaten.

I had a couple requests from members for the cake recipe.  There were two kinds of cake.  Kentucky Butter cake, a moist cake covered in a buttery glaze AND  Sour Cream Pound Cake with a crisp crust hiding a moist center.

Kentucky Butter Cake (actually there is no butter in this recipe. . . it's all margarine)

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup margarine, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
4 eggs
Heat oven 325F.  Grease and flour tube cake pan.  Mix  all ingredients until moist.  Beat 3 minutes at medium speed.  Pour into pan.  Bake 60-70 minutes.  When the cake comes out of the oven poke a bunch of holes in the cake with a wooden skewer or fork.
In a small saucepan melt :
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup margarine
3 Tablespoons water
Take off the heat and add 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla.
Pour slowly over cake.  Let the cake cool completely before taking out of pan.

Sour Cream Pound Cake
1 cup butter
3 cups sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 cup sour cream
2 tsp. vanilla
6 eggs
3 cups flour
Cream together butter and sugar; add next 4 ingredients and mix well.  Beat in 2 eggs at a time alternately with 1 cup flour at a time.  Beat well after each addition. Grease and flour tube pan. Bake  for 90 minutes at 325.
