I’ve made a politically unpopular move by attempting to makeover a family recipe that is viewed by my husband and anyone sharing blood with him as perfect – no modifications or improvements needed. For any birthday, holiday or other occasion necessitating a cake, this is THE cake. I have the recipe, have shared it countless times and over the course of a decade, made it many times over. So why fix what isn’t broken? I wanted to see if I could find a version of the recipe that was made from scratch, with high-quality “real” ingredients. The original, while unmistakably delicious, is made from a combination of processed food mixes – a cake mix, a box of Jell-O, etc. The version below is as “real” as it gets.
