I was listening to the radio this week, and the show's host was talking about that Miranda Lambert song, Automatic, which waxes nostalgic about pay phones, snail mail, and using a Rand McNally to get where you're going. While admittedly have a fascination with most things vintage, I definitely appreciate having a maps app on my phone to help me get around, and I certainly think those hand-crank windows and lack of air conditioning in my mom's old Jeep Wrangler make it less than ideal as a method of summertime transportation to work. While vintage isn't bad, improvements certainly aren't either.
Thus, we come to this cake: this recipe is certainly '90s vintage, and I'm pretty sure my family has been making it since before dial-up was popular. We made this cake up for my little sister's Mia's birthday this year, and we put a twist on the original recipe. Here, I shared both the '90s vintage recipe and the everything-homemade-since-all-the-things-are-on-the-line-nowadays recipe that we used this year.
