Sister’s Special Apple Caramel Cake
You remember I told y’all sister didn’t want me to make no cakes to take to Miz Pruitt’s setting up. She was braggin on her cooking and throwin off on mine, like to have burned me up but I didn’t say nothin. I just kept my mouth shut and let that old girl talk a blue streak. Anyways, this cake she brought to the settin up was pretty good. Now, I wont say it was better than mine, cause it wasn’t but it was pretty good.
Friends, this is one of sister’s cakes she took to Miz Pruitt’s setting up. Now I hate to say it but there was not one crumb left. Everybody bragged on sister’s cake and she was prancing around like she had won first place in a cake cooking contest. I thought y’all might like to make one for yourself so I got her recipe. It was pretty good but don’t let Sister know I said that. I don’t want to give her the big head.
