It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year

Home is the nicest word there is. – Laura Ingalls Wilder

There’s NOTHING that screams HOME… more than HOME COOKED meals; HOMEMADE, fluffy cakes & sipping coffee around the table!

That’s MY experience growing up…& a tradition that I don’t take lightly!

Throughout the seasons here at the farm…
there’s ALWAYS been a staple
that’s delighted many!

THE… ‘ole’ fashion brown sugar cake’

And… I’m here to share ALL the details
in baking THIS scrumptious sweet!

The possibilities are ENDLESS…
when consider the additions you can
add to THIS cake!

Leave PLAIN with absolutely no glaze
(my preference) BUT, most love the
EXTRA sugar!

Tweak the glaze by adding…
juices from an orange… totally optional,
BUT, adds JUST the right citrus hint!

When preferring to add the citrus juice…
I love adding some embellishment to the
overall appearance.  The EXTRA…
just adds more BEAUTY, especially when gifting!

When adding the glaze make sure
it’s the right consistency… PLEASE…
refer to the REPLAY on the business link BELOW.

The glaze isn’t an icing spread…
it’s to be drizzled while the
cake is half cooled!

The appearance of THIS cake…
may look to be overdone… BUT, it’s
completely at the SUPERB stage!

This recipe is a heavy one… & with that
the cake needs to have THIS tone of color
to ensure it’s completely baked all the way through.

EXCUSE… the excessive worn cake pan…
you can vision it’s been WELL loved through the years!

‘Ole’ Fashion Brown Sugar Cake’

1 box yellow cake mix (I prefer… Betty Crocker Cake Mix)

1 box instant vanilla pudding mix

1/2-1 cup brown sugar

4 FARM eggs

1 cup oil

1 cup warm water

1/2 cup chopped walnuts; almonds; pecans (optional)

Mix ALL ingredients… pour into a WELL oiled bundt cake pan.Bake… 350 degrees 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on oven variations


powered sugar



(juices from citrus, optional)

NOW… back to the oranges… I’ve had a surplus throughout the Christmas season & to make sure there’s no waste… I dry them for garlands; outdoor, bird feeding & potpourri.

Of course… the end waste makes it’s way to the compost tumbler.
Slice the oranges/apples thin…blot with a paper towel… dry in the oven at 200 degrees for 2-3 hours.

Make YOUR house a home by offering SIMPLE handmade’s; homemade & natural pieces!

Hoping THESE words… bring JOY to your day… ENJOY every scrumptious bite of THIS homemade cake… &go dry some citrus!

SWEET… blessings, from the farm, with MUCH love! -Pamela
