Recently, I had my Mom and Mother-in-Law over for dinner. I wanted to serve a dessert that wasn't too sweet to end our evening. I searched through several of my cookbooks to find the right dessert. And I finally found one in my Better Homes and Gardens 17th Edition New Cookbook. https://www.bhg.com/

One Bowl Butter Cake

After spending so much time in the kitchen preparing dinner (Coca-Cola Glazed Ham, Baked Beans, and Creamed Corn), I was looking for a simple and easy dessert recipe.

Here's what's going into this recipe

And I found just that in this cake recipe. My Mom isn't much on sweets so, I wanted something that I could add a little fruit to. I decided to top the cake with homemade whip cream and added berries to it.

This One-Bowl Butter Cake is the perfect size for a small dinner gathering. I will be making this again and change up the toppings!
