I have a new cookbook in my MasterCook Maryann! It's called "Maryann's Momma's Recipes." How about that?
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.

No kidding! I bought cake flour today for the second time in my life. How did I know???? (actually it was purchased for cupcakes I was going to make, but have since decided against, so I'm happy to have a use for this cake flour)

Once my baking skills return, I will make this.

Thanks for posting, Maryann!

You are very welcome everyone! It really is worth the bother, you will see. Vicci, you just knew that cake flour was going to come in handy for something this summer. Did you have a chance to try the C@H recipe for coconut pound cake. It was fantastic!

Billy J, my momma would be so honored! Sit tight, there's plenty more where those came from.

Oh, this takes me back! In High School, my birthday cakes were homemade Angel Food with Peanut Butter Icing. These were the days before Angel Food mixes, thank goodness!

I appreciate the absolute best tried and true. Thank you!
