The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.


It is a new year and a new book - Little Everyday Cakes - and our choices for March 2021 were ~ 

Crumb Cake

Spice Cake with Brown Sugar Buttercream Frosting

Jam Cake

    I made my cake to take up north with me this weekend as Frank is holding a CPL (concealed pistol license) class and I provide breakfast and lunch for the students.  The cake will be served later today so I don't have a photo of the cake divided into serving pieces.

    I have been very happy with my selections from this new cookbook thus far.  I have not yet tasted this cake but it smells delicious and it looks very promising.  I am confident enough in this recipe to serve it to the students without a taste test.  That says a lot about my confidence in this cookbook.

      This lovely, tender cake topped with a cinnamon crunch streudel is perfect for breakfast or for dessert.
      Prep time: 15 MinCook time: 40 MinTotal time: 55 Min


      • 1 1/2 c. flour
      • pinch of salt
      • 1/4 t. vanilla
      • 1 c. brown sugar, packed
      • 1 t. cinnamon
      • 1 stick butter, melted
      • 1 1/2 c. flour
      • 1/2 t. baking soda
      • 3/4 t. salt
      • 1/2 t. nutmeg
      • 7 T. butter, room temperature
      • 1/2 c. sugar
      • 1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
      • 2 eggs
      • 1/2  c. buttermilk
      • 1 t. vanilla


      1. Combine the flour, salt, vanilla, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.  Pour the melted butter over the flour mixture and toss to to form coarse crumbles.  Set aside.
      1. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.  Set aside.
      2. Place the butter in the large bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.  Cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.  
      3. Turn the speed to low and add some of the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternating with the buttermilk until just combined.  Stir in the vanilla.  
      4. Scrape the batter into an 8" square baking pan that has been liberally treated with baking spray.   With your fingers, crumble the reserved topping over the batter, covering completely.  Gently press the crumbs down into the batter and bake in a preheated 350* oven for 35-40 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the cake removes cleanly.
