{American Flag Cake}

I’m re-posting this one because its one of my favorite 4th of July desserts! This is a really tasty cake, and it’s big so it’s great for get togethers. Enjoy

2 1/4 sticks butter at room temperature
3 cups sugar
6 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Butter and flour cookie sheet pan.

Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. On medium speed, add the eggs, 2 at a time, then add the sour cream and vanilla. Scrape down the sides and stir until smooth.

Sift together the flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until just combined. Pour into the prepared pan. Smooth the top with a spatula. Bake in the center of the oven for 20 to 30 minutes on 350 degrees until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool to room temperature.

1/2 bag of confectioners’ sugar

1/2 Pint heavy whipping cream (whip and fold into the other 3)

I have always wanted to have a food blog for a few different reasons. First-because I have sooo many recipes kinda scattered all over the place that it would actually be amazing to just have them all in one spot where it would only take me seconds to find them. And second-to share my love for cooking with others and getting feedback. I would say it’s kind of one of my hobbies to collect recipes and try them out. So far my husband and kids are my only fans, but I love seeing the enjoyment on their faces when they eat something I make them. Hopefully whoever happens to stumble upon this blog will enjoy the different recipes too 🙂
