Lightning cake

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 \N Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Sifted flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
¼ teaspoon Salt
½ cup Hot milk
1 tablespoon Butter

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and butter an 8 x 8 x 2 square pan. Beat until thick, the eggs and vanilla. Beat in a little at a time, the sugar.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt, and stir in. Heat the milk and butter until the butter melts. Stir in the milk into the mixture and beat 1 minute or until smooth. Pour into pan and bake about 25 minutes.


After the batter is in the pan, place a layer of fruit on top, you can put as much or as little as you want (it will sink). Jeannette Baker says, they usually use apples, blueberries or peaches. But you can use any fruit that you like. Then sprinkle the whole top with cinnamon and sugar.

This is the recipe that Jeannette Baker had sent. It's from the Tenth Edition 1959 of the Fannie Farmer Cookbook.

***What I do:***

I bake the cake without the fruit on top. Then as it is cooling, I would clean and slice some strawberries up, and place them in a bowl, with some sugar and a little water. I let it sit a while, so it will form a syrup.

Then when the cake is cool enough, I serve up a piece of the cake with some strawberries on top. Then spray some Reddi Whip on top.

"It is sooooo- Good!"
