Do Nothing Cake

Spread the love




When a friend brought this Do Nothing Cake to a church supper, EVERYONE insisted on getting the recipe. Very moist and delicious. This really is just about a do nothing cake, unless you count walking across the street to the neighbor’s to borrow sugar! LOL! So simple and delicious and MOIST! Now I must cut some to take to the neighbors before it is gone. I love the way the icing soaks into the cake and makes it so moist. I poked holes in the cake so it could soak in easier.
