Breakfast Cake Recipe


Resa wanted breakfast cake this morning.  As I was mixing the ingredeints my mind wandered to the first time I made this for Mat.  I wanted to impress him by cooking something for breakfast.  Well, needless to say, it was a FLOP!!!

Somehow, I managed to switch the baking powder for baking SODA.  Not only did it not rise but the taste was completely off.  Yet even with that first cooking disaster he didn’t run from the house screaming.  Instead he stayed for even more cooking mishaps.  I can honestly say that he did not marry me for my cooking 🙂


4 Tablespoons shortening or butter

1 egg, slightly beaten

1/2 cup milk

1 cup flour, sifted

1/2 cup sugar

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Melt shortening (or butter), cool slightly.  Mix in egg and milk.  Sift dry ingredients together.  Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture.  Stir only long enough to remove lumps.  Pour batter into greased in 8 inch square pan.  Bake 10-15 minutes. 


Everytime I make this recipe it brings back memories.  It was a treat when Mama Griffin or Mom made this for us.  I love it slathered with butter and a cup of coffee, but it is also good with strawberry jam.  Of course, Resa’s favorite is plain.
