Mmmm cake

I found a delicious recipe for a cake in a magazine I picked up at the goodwill store. I wanted to make this other spice cake but Kaya insited on this one and it was scrummy. Soooo unhealthy and nothing at all good for you in this.

Here's the recipe


2/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup dark brown suger
1/3 cup maple syrup
3/4 teaspoon baking soda


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water
1 egg, well beaten
3 tablespoon lemon juice


8 oz package cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp milk
3 tbsp confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

(see what I mean about how unhealthy it is!)

~Heat oven to 350 degrees farenheit

~ Grease 8 by 8 pan

~ Beat shortening and light brown sugar with electric mixer for 5 minutes

~Stir in flour and salt until mixture becomes nice and crumbly

~ Press half of the crumble mixture in the greased pan

~ in another own, mix water, dark brown sugar, maple syrup and baking soda until well blended

~ pour half over the crumble in pan

~ sprinkle half of remaining crumble on top

~pour rest of liquid mixture on top

~ sprinkle the rest of the crumble on top

~Bake for 35-40 mins

~Meanwhile make lemon sauce

~ mix all ingredients in saucepan

~ heat to boiling, stirring constantly, then cook for 1 minute

~Make cream cheese topping

~Mix all ingredients in a bowl with an electrical mixer until well blended and creamy


Serve the cake warm with hot lemon sauce and chilled cream cheese topping

Oh man it's so yummy. I think because the cake part is layered, it's so soft and let in your mouth and crumbly. Mmmmm
