Butter cake creamy sweet and round
Soft and fluffy and weighs a pound
Mum used to bake and it tasted good
Why is mine like stale bread so crude?
Mum used to bake the most delicious butter cakes. She would give them away to neighbours and friends. I like to eat Mum’s cakes oven-fresh when they are still warm, moist and soft. The aroma is just heavenly.
Today is my second attempt at baking. The first was a disaster. It did not rise at all. This second cake is not any better. It rose, but just barely. If only knowing where I went wrong in the mixing and baking process is like troubleshooting a computer, it would be so much easier.
