    Diabetics, please avert your eyes. :D I saw this video a while ago and decided to try this cake today. It went together easily and will put you in a sugar coma faster than you can say "ice cream, please." I enjoy this woman's videos; she cooks like my grandma used to do.

    I probably won't make this again. :D

    I watched until she put the layer in the oven. Now I'm drooling all over my keyboard.

    She sounds like she is from the south, y'all. :D

    Dump cake is what my mother called it. I watched my grandmother and mother make this cake. It is as easy to make and yummy for the tummy.

    She's from one of the Carolinas; I can't remember if it's North or South. I usually have to mute her videos because she does that "scraping the metal spoon on the pot" thing that makes my teeth hurt. I'd like to mail her a set of silicone spatulas. :D

    It was definitely easy to make, Von. Kind of a little kick from the buttermilk, too. Very buttery cake.

    Back then there was no self-rising flour so salt and baking powder had to be measured and added. They both sifted powdered sugar or lemon icing on top.

    Yummy. My ex MIL used to make a lemon pound cake that had a lemon drizzle on it.

    That lemon pound cake was one of my favorite desserts my grandmother made. I failed terribly trying to make it.

    Did you see that Mr. Bucky died in July? Very sad.

    I used to look at her channel at least twice a week, but I have to admit it's probably now about 6 months since I last looked, I'll go and catch up today..

    Oh, I've just been catching up on Phyllis's videos... I had no idea she'd got so ill before Mr Bucky died, poor woman has been through hell the last few months, and now she hasn't posted in well over a month, so there's real concern for her out there now!! o_O

    Sorry to derail this cake thread !!

    Yes, she's had a very difficult past 6 months or so. I hope she is doing well with the cancer treatment, but his dying was a total shock. Anyway, I have watched her off and on for years; she's such a hard worker that it's hard to see the changes in her life. (And I have no problem with the topic!! We can share more of her recipes later. :D)

    Thanks @Beth Gallagher
    It makes my cottage cheese and unsweetened applesauce dessert so much better.
    :D
