Minnehaha Cake
October 01, 2018

This cake was very well received by adults and kids when I made it for my Mother's 65th birthday. I did make a change that was necessary due to items on hand. I was out of vanilla extract so I used pure almond extract in the cake. This change made the cake taste like a Madeline. I also took the previous reviewers recommendation and reduced the brown sugar to 1 cup packed in the frosting, as I do not like over sweet frosting. I did use vanilla extract in the frosting. I decorated with toasted almond only as raisins do not go over well with most of my family. I also shared a bit of the history of the cake.
