A nice change from pancakes for Sunday breakfast. This is an old French Acadia breakfast from my childhood. Best served with ham steaks and eggs. Give this a try and add fruit if you wish. Serve with melted butter or margarine and warm molasses.

What a lovely cake! I used gluten free all-purpose flour, so I added an extra bit of milk and used butter instead of margarine. The cake came out light and moist. I think it is sweet enough, so I just used a simple powdered sugar glaze on top. It went very well with fresh fruit at tea time; really a delightful treat. Thank you for sharing the recipe. PS. I forgot to add that I only used 1/2 Tbsp of baking powder. Read More

The cake was good but I made a few changes as someone else suggested. I also made a pecan caramel sauce to top it off and that was even better. I will make it again. Read More

Batter was too dry so I added another egg and a bit more milk. Substituted coconut oil for the butter. After baking it was still a bit too dry so next time we will double the oil and use 4 T. coconut oil. Other than that perfect sweetness. Kids even loved it and asked for more. May also try adding a smashed banana for extra moistness or even applesauce. Overall a simple easy tasty recipe. Thanks! Read More
