I love sweets. The Busy Day Cake recipe on Orangette with its cute story was irresistible.
It seemed so simple and really it was, except for my inspired hand creaming the butter and sugar idea. (I think the butter wasn't quite soft enough leading to blisters from my attempt to cream it by hand.) In spite of that mishap, this took maybe 20 minutes to pull together.
The cake isn't overly sweet and for once I managed to not over mix it, so it rose nicely. My only complaint is the cake is a little dry and crumbly. In fact, it resembles slightly sweet, dry cornbread without the corn flavor.
I'll probably make this again eventually. No rush.
