    5. This is very similar to what my family called a Buttermilk sheeth cake. Very rich and reminds me of a brownie.

    8. In a number of episodes, I have seen Michelle and Anna use a mixer or food processor to make cookies and other baked goods. It has a bowl with lid, and a whisk attachment and probably other blades or beaters. Can we get a brand/model name for these appliances?

      Hi Anonymous 9,

      Both Michelle and Anna have Bosch mixers that they use to make bread and other baked goods. Sounds like that's what you saw.

    12. Can you replace the Oleo with butter?
      Does this recipe work if you make smaller portions? Like small loaves or cupcakes?

      I am always looking for special recipes for our Firefighters baking and often provide a nice cake verses cookies for Christmas Day. We bake for each holiday and for all the houses.
      Thank you for the ideas

      Hi Anonymous 13,

      Yes, you can replace Oleo with butter. Sorry for the delayed response! We were in Arkansas all weekend for Jill's wedding. :)

    14. Hi, not to be too nitpicky, but did anyone notice that step 5 is missing out of the recipe? hopefully it tells you when to add the buttermilk, baking soda, eggs and vanilla!

      Hi Anonymous 18,

      Oleo is another term for margarine. You can also substitute butter.

    17. This sounds very much like the cake my mother used to make and I still have her recipe. The first time I remember having it was about 50 years ago.

    18. Is the cocoa sweetened, semi, or unsweetened?

      Hi Kellie,

      The cocoa is unsweetened. :)

    20. If butter is replaced do you boil the butter, that doesn't seem like anything I have ever seen before, is this a special secret?

      ReplyDelete
    21. You melt the butter. I have made chocolate frosting off the back of the Hershey cocoa box and it's a similar method. I want to try this one...
