Busy Day Cake

40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
8 ingredients
9 servings
I got this recipe from the Fanny Farmer Cookbook - years and years ago. It is the first cake I ever learned to make. I believe the first time I made it I was about 10 years old. I also taught my boys how to make this when they were 8 and 10. It's very easy. Tasty enough, but the frosting is what adds the most flavor. I use the store bought frosting on it. Very simple to make and like the title says - it's great for a dessert on a busy day!
