The Best Brown Sugar Cake....

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone!
My goodness the week has flown by sooo
super fast! I have been a very busy bee! I spent
all day yesterday making Brown Sugar Cakes and
I have more to bake today.... Plus I have my Card
Swap tonight... Well I wanted to show you my yummy
cake and show you how I jazzed it up to give to my
neighbors.... I even have the recipe for YOU!!!

(Click on the Photo to Enlarge)

First... let me start by saying that I made this
last year for my neighbors (Cake)... and I got such a HUGE
response on how yummy, moist , and Delicious this
cake is... So, I decided this year to give them my recipe...
Sooo, I spent time Tuesday night making the recipe cards
out in my Word program... then I cut them out and used some
Self Adhesive Laminate with some Transparency Sheets...
Then I punched a small hole and added an eyelet for my
recipe card to hang on the package...

Here are a couple of them that I made....

This one is ready to go with the powder Sugar on top!

And here is what it looks like when I take
it over to the neighbors.... I use Red Cellophane
that I got at Wally World... This color was on clearance and
it was hiding behind the baskets in the craft area...
The tag you've seen before.... It's from my Gift Tag Set
for my Cricut Cardz Challenge... And then the Recipe card...
I tied it all up with ribbon I got for $1 at Wally World to!
I think it looks very festive and I know my neighbors are gonna
LOVE IT! Well that's it for me this week.... Be on the
look out for Miislucky... she should have something to show ya!
Have an AWESOME day!

OOPS: I almost forgot to give you the recipe....

I am not a baker but your cake looks and sounds yummy. Lucky neighbors. It really does look pretty all tied and decorated. Have a wonderful weekend. I make Texas trash and give out.

Hi, Theresa. Texas trash is sort of like chex party mix only bigger and better. This is what I put in it-chex cereals,pretzels, fritoes, shoestring potatoes, cheetos, wheat thins, wheat nuts, mixed nuts (no peanuts) extra pecans, cornnuts and extra any other nuts.I think I listed it all. This is a very big bowl of stuff. You melt block butter, I used the whole pound, 1/2 cup worchestershire sauce and 4 TBS Tony Chacheres cajun seasoning. When this is all melted and dissolved add the dry ingredients. Stir to coat everything. Cook at 250 degrees and stir every 15 minutes. I usually cook it for about 3 hours. Pour out onto layers of newspaper with paper towels on them. It needs to cool and dry out. It gets crispy. store in airtight containers. My family loves it. This particular recipe has evolved over the last 40 years.
