Cream cake

This recipe was found in my Great-Grandmother, Anna (Simmon) Fox’s recipe book. My grandfather, John Fox, told me it was his favorite cake. Probably because of the whipped cream frosting. One year for his birthday, I made it for him. The recipe didn’t have any instructions, so I just guessed. It turned out okay. I really should try it again. If you do let me know how it comes out!

2 egg
1 Cup sour cream
1 Cup sugar
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Cup cream
1 3/4 Cups sifted flour
1 Teaspoon cream of tartar
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon nutmeg
a little baking powder

Sift dry ingredients together. This will be a second sifting for the flour. Mix sour cream, sugar and butter until smooth and sugar is dissolved. Add eggs one at a time. Mix well in between each egg. Add half of the dry ingredients and mix. Add half-cup of cream and mix. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix. Add remaining cream and mix. Pour into two – round cake pans. Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until done.

Frost with whipped cream.

Christmas Fried Bread


On Sundays before Christmas, we would gather at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Grandpa would be making candy canes and Grandma would be making Fried Bread. It was delicious, but you couldn’t eat too much or you would get a stomach ache. Who could eat just one. I haven’t had this bread in years, but when Christmas time comes, I do think about making it. Maybe this year.
