Good morning! What a weekend it was. I turned 20 yesterday! The big 2-0! I can't believe it. I'm so old!
Well it was definitely a birthday for the books! Our family went down to Zion National Park and did some canyonerring down a slot canyon called Fat Man's Misery (a silly name I know, but it sure was beautiful). After getting home from our trip, my brother and I pulled out the motorcycles and went for a ride because it was my birthday, so duh. Overall, it was just the greatest day ever!
P.S. This adorable cake plate ^^^ is from Cath Kidston. I'm obsessed.
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
4 eggs (separated)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 º Fahrenheit. Beat together butter and sugar. Separate eggs and add yolks to butter mixture. Sift flour and baking powder. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternating with milk. Stir in vanilla. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter. Pour batter in two greased 9 inch baking pans lined with parchment paper (or one floured tube pan for strawberry shortcake) and bake for 25-30 minutes for 9 inch pans or 45 minutes for tube pan. Frost with cream cheese icing and cover with coconut and chocolate Easter eggs for a festive Easter cake. Or serve with fresh whipped cream and strawberries.
