Rembert Family Favorite Recipes
Nana's Spice Cake
1 stick butter
Cream butter and sugar; add eggs 1 at a time; add vanilla.
Sift dry ingredients together and add alternately w/buttermilk.
Pour into two prepared cake pans.
Bake at 350 about 25 min. Cool on racks. This is an original recipe and the grandchildren’s favorite cake.
Frost with whatever you like. I use this chocolate icing:
¼ cup cocoa
1 cup sugar
¼ cup cream, half & half, or evaporated milk
½ stick butter (not margarine)
1 tsp vanilla
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add cream, sugar and cocoa and mix well. Cook and stir over medium heat until full rolling boil. Boil for one minute without stirring. Remove from heat. Add 1 tsp vanilla. Stir and beat until mixture begins to thicken. Working quickly, spread about half on the bottom layer. Put on the top layer and pour the rest over it. If you’re lucky, the icing will harden about half way down the sides. I’m lucky about half the time, so don’t worry if it’s not perfect. It will still taste great.
