Happy Birthday to my beautiful mom! She is a selfless person with a big heart and always puts her family first.
Since we keep Q busy with activities all week, we celebrated my mom’s special day yesterday. We had a delicious dinner out and ended the evening with cake. You’ve got to have cake!
I made one of my go-to’s – sour cream cake. I have been making this for years and don’t remember where the original recipe comes from. It takes minutes to prepare and bakes in an hour. It always turns out moist and is a favourite of many.
I love the versatility of this cake. It can be smothered in buttercream for a delicious birthday treat or baked in a bundt pan with a layer of cinnamon, brown sugar and nuts in the middle. This is also great as cupcakes, after adding a handful (or few!) of chocolate chips.
Happy Birthday Mom!! Love you!
