Old-Fashioned Cake Recipes
From Scratch

Old-fashioned cake recipes from scratch. Many of these are classics, Blue Ribbon cakes that were entered into a state or county fair contest where they won 1st place for best of taste.

Some were served in best restaurants and cafeterias. Sour Cream Coffee Cake was sold wholesale to a local wine cellar, where they were so popular they were sold out the day I delivered them.

These old-fashioned cake recipes made from scratch, have been in our family many years, passing the "tried and true" tests.

Whether it's a special day for family or friends to celebrate or just a day you wish to complete a meal with a memorable desert, serve one of these cakes, made with your hands. (See Images below).
