So hard to believe the eighth week of 2012 is almost over and that March will be here next week!
I found this week's cake a few years ago from my friend Kelli's lovely blog. It is delicious served with fruit and whipped cream and is wonderful for a lady's gathering. I hosted our monthly women's fellowship last night and all enjoyed the Sugar Cookie Cake. Let me know if you bake it!
Sugar Cookie Cake
3/4 cup cold butter, cut in small pieces
3 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix butter, flour and sugar into a crumbs (I use my food processor for this step and then pour the crumbs into a large bowl and finish off with a pastry cutter). Set aside 1 cup of the crumbs.
To the rest of the crumbs, add the buttermilk to which the 1 teaspoon of baking soda has been added.
Add the eggs and vanilla; mix and pour into a greased 9x13 in. pan
Top with the 1 cup reserved crumbs.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes (or until a cake tester comes out clean).
