A Sweet Shout-Out for A Cake Bakes

Because I was out-of-town last week, I missed the fabulous Brooklyn Blogfest created by pioneer blogger Louise Crawford, author of  But I was thrilled to learn that A Cake Bakes was one of the dozen or so blogs included in Blogs Aloud, a theatrical performance directed by Elizabeth Palmer of Midnight Cowgirls. Actors Nancy Graham, Charlotte Maier and Elizabeth Palmer performed pieces from the blogs. The segment they chose from A Cake Bakes is below: 
There was a time in this country when many housewives would bake a cake every day, that not baking one was akin to forgoing the side dishes for a meal. Lazy Daisy Cake is one of those cakes that many a housewife had in her repertoire.  I’ve discovered several similarly named recipes – Busy Day Cake, Impossible Cake, One-Egg Cake – all promising to get sweets on the table fast. But Lazy Daisy Cake is more than quick – it’s light and delicious with a luscious broiled topping that’s much simpler than a buttercream and more special.  In fact, it’s almost like cake brulee, especially if you slightly overbroil it, as I did.
