The birds and squirrels are fighting today. Not enough seeds, too many animals.

My grandpa has expressed a desire for some and I have never heard of it. He is 89 and I would love to surprise him .Thank you to anyone who can help.
I am sure that Abeliever or Toots will be more than glad to help you out when they get on here later Dana. Both of them seem to like to cook. Wish I could help, but all I could do would be post an online recipe, those ladies probably both have fine home cooked recopies that will be better than anything I could find for you..

Good morning, AW. Been up since 5 A.M. Stein wanted heat turned up. No more fire since I moved here. Miss that wood-burning stove, even with the soot that came with it.

Ancient Wolf, do you do much cooking on your wood stove?
Don't you know how us old tightwads do? We set an opened can of pork and beans by the wood-stove in the morning to heat up for dinner, then another can of wolf chili, or ...whatever, to heat up in time for supper. Saves electricity or propane.
I personally use a propane stove to cook fancy suppers on, it still works if the electric goes out. And I have always liked to see fire under what I'm cooking.

A big old danged helichopper just flew over my house. It had sprayers on each side of it. I thought the KU only sprayed the weeds under hard to access power lines in the springtime.

Sorry, Imposter, but I don't cook well. I was one of those "career ladies" who never developed "house mouse" skills. I've never heard of that kind of cake, either. Must be one of those Southern recipes. Sounds like it might be good. I'll bet that Abeliever has a recipe.

Cheerful greetings Believer. I'm definately going to hold you to singing the Soft Kitty song. Lol. That will go down as a classic. I will always say, that was better than anything Humpaburn could ever cook on that Weber Bullet grill of his and he can come up with some top notch recipes. Have a blessed day, dear one.
Teddy Fartman
Back at you on the cheerful greetings Una. I will come back tonight and sing Soft Kitty to you. lol

I hope you have a blessed day as well.:)

My birds are very well mannered at the feeders, they take turns. I think they have been reading Martha Stewart Living. It is a beautiful day.

Old Fashion stack cakes are no easy chore so roll up your sleeves and maybe get a helper. Absolutly be sure to refrig at least 24 hours before serving.
1/2 cup all-vegetable shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup molasses
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg (sorry but it says pinch),,
Confectioners' sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 6 (9-inch) cake pans with nonstick cooking spray. Line bottoms of pans with parchment paper, and spray parchment paper with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, beat shortening and sugar at medium speed with a mixer until creamy. Add buttermilk, molasses, egg and vanilla, beating well.
In a large bowl, combine flour, ginger, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Make a well in center of flour mixture. Add shortening mixture, stirring just until combined.
On a lightly floured surface, form dough into a log; cut into six equal portions. Place one portion in each prepared pan, and use fingers to lightly pat dough to edges of pans.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks. Cake will have the consistency of a gingerbread cookie.
Place one cake layer on a serving plate or cake stand; spread with about 3/4 cup warm apple butter filling. You can use jar filling but below is a good filling.
Repeat procedure with remaining layers and fruit butter filling, stacking each on previous layer. Do not spread fruit butter filling on top layer. Cover and refrigerate cake for at least 24 hours. Just before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar.
Apple butter filling:
4 cups roughly chopped dried apples
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnomon
6 cups apple cider (not juice)
In large saucepan, combine dried fruit and all dry ingredients. Add enough liquid to cover. Bring to a low boil and cook, stirring often, for 45 minutes.
Remove from heat, and let stand for 10 minutes or until cooled slightly. Transfer to the work bowl of a food processor or container of a blender; process until smooth. Coat cake layers while filling is still warm.
Then mail me a piece.

Ok I see that Humpaburn is up and at 'em so the sun must have come up once again. Better get to work bringing more wood in the shack.
It was colder than a witches tit in a bras bra last night.
Just close your eyes and imagine it when I sing it tonight. I will take my shirt off while doing so. lol

Great recipe Hempburn, here is another one:

Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes
Ingredients:
6 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup molasses
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
Preparation:
Sift together flour, soda, baking powder, salt, ginger and cinnamon. Cream shortening and sugar; add molasses and mix well. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla. Add buttermilk alternately with flour, mixing well. Place dough on floured surface. Work in enough flour to make it easy to handle, but not stiff. Divide dough into 9 portions; shape into balls. Place 1 ball in greased 9-inch round pan. Press dough with hand evenly over bottom of pan.
Bake at 350 degrees 15 to 18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly before removing from the pan.
Continue the same process for each ball of dough. Same pans may be used again but grease each time. Stack layers with apple filling (below). Store cake in airtight container or wrap at least over night to for best flavor and moisture. Cake freezes well.
Filling
1 pound dried apples
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Wash and cook apples in water until tender. Drain then mash well; mix with sugars and cinnamon.

Yummy.

Hi lala, actually I have two recipes. One from Mom and one from my ex-mother-in-law. It is basically one of those "southern" recipes like bread pudding. I love to cook and bake. Always have. So grateful Mom taught all of us girls to cook. I taught my son. Nothing sexier than a man that can cook. I use to have one that did. He was killed 3 months before we were to be married. I still miss him terribly.

Here's some news for you folks to figure out. Yesterday, there were news reports (breaking news crawl at the bottom of the t.v.screen)about a shuttle-type plane about 1/4 the size of the original space shuttles blasting off from Florida. The mission involving this shuttle was deemed classified, but reporters conjectured that this mini-shuttle was sent up to deploy some kind of satellite. In other news today, North Korea blasted off a multi-stage rocket carrying a satellite into orbit. This is the first time that a rocket had a range long enough to reach California. Scientists from Iran were present during the take off. N. Korea reported success,but U.S. stated that the satellite was not fully under control and was tumbling in orbit. No worries for no about it plummeting to earth.
I wonder what's up with these two events. North Korea will soon have the capability to use a warhead with their new rocket. They are in collaboration with Iran, which adds a new destabilization factor to consider, amid the chaos now occurring in the Middle East. And what's up with that U.S. shuttle that really isn't talked about since yesterday. Syria's government is about to topple, with extreme violence erupting there.

This has implications for us. The extreme violence going on now will have ramifications for us, in that there will be increases in price for gas. We risk being drawn in to another conflict. Increased prices for food will be passed on to the consumer; from more costs for commercial farmers to grow the food, to increased costs to transport the food to grocery stores. The world is in quite a mess.
