Will it ever stop raining?!!!?


I have never seen so much rain!  We are well over 7 inches, and another 1 or 2 still expected.  Time to stay inside and sew, I say!  However, whether it rains or not, life still must move forward – work, school, groceries, post office, kids’ activities…sigh.  Tonight, then, we will all be tucked up warm, cozy, and DRY!   Maybe I will find time to whip up a comforting, sweet treat like this from one of my favorite Gooseberry Patch cookbooks…

Cinnamon Cake

1 cup sugar

2 Tablespoons butter

1 cup milk

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix all ingredients and pour into greased 13 x 9 inch pan.  Add topping (below).


2 cups brown sugar

2 Tablespoons butter

1 1/4 cup water

Combine ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil.  Pour mixture over cake and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Serve this warm, with or without whipped cream or some vanilla ice cream, but most importantly, accompanied by a steaming mug of coffee.

Hoping that in your corner of the world,  your evening is warm, cozy, and dry.
