When I took one bite of these I knew I would be adding 15 -20 minutes to my workouts!  They do have a
cake like texture.  They remind me of my Grandmother(Birda Mae)'s teacakes!   She was one of those cooks
that didn't really follow a recipe too, often(Except for 7 up cakes)  So this is the closest  thing I found.  The kids inhaled them I had to make another batch yesterday because Joshua didn't get that many and he barely
got some the second time .  I may have to make them again.  Enjoy!

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
