Momma's Pennsylvania Dutch Breakfast Cakes

Momma's Breakfast Cakes

This is a very old PA Dutch breakfast cake recipe dating back to at least my great-great grandmother. It's amazing these ingredients produce such a delicious cake. My grandmother spread butter on each slice before eating, but I never thought it necessary.

      Thanks for your comment Ceres Schwarz!

      I made that cake yesterday for the picture (my family was happy). I'm not a photographer so it's nice to hear I managed to do the cake justice in the picture. :)

      Good luck, it is a pretty easy cake to make.
