Random Notions - Sharing a Cake Recipe

A quick note - I haven't been around for awhile because I have a sick cat. I am doing everything I can to save her and she is looking better. Fingers crossed.

But I did want to pop in here and share a cake recipe my Aunt Frances gave to me a really long time ago - she has been gone since about 2013, I think. I had the cake many times at her house - it was her go-to recipe, and I thought I would share it with the world. It really is a good cake, and I copied it exactly as she had written it over 60 years ago:

Jiffy Cake

Meanwhile scald milk, add butter and let cool.
Add cooled milk mixture with vanilla to egg mixture. Beat well.
