OMYGOSH...we are having the most awesome weather....
cool, cloudy.....just my kind of day.
It was so nice on our mile walk this morning.
We had a tiny rain a few evenings back and it may not have helped crops and lawns much but it
surely did HELP FEELINGS.
Ever heard of COWBOY COFFEE CAKE.....?(click here for her RECIPE)
Well, our good friend, LYNN that rules over at HAPPIER THAN A PIG IN MUD,
regardless of what EARL says,
made this cake and I just had to try it since I could just flat MARRY
COFFEE CAKE. I love the stuff.....
and, may I just take the time right here to say that this
COWBOY COFFEE CAKE
is AMAZINGLY GOOD. ♥
Lynn got the recipe from POSED PERFECTION and I sure am glad she did.
(wonder where it got that name?)
I DEFINITELY would have added
I used the IDEAL No Calorie Sweetener and 1 cap full of Vanilla.
The sweetener is AMAZING...taste JUST LIKE SUGAR...we use it in EVERYthing.
and I add Vanilla to every single thing I bake.
I even dabbed a little behind ea ear just like my Aunt Lillian used to do.
I also added a small handful of rolled, OLD FASHIONED Oats to the topping.
While I waited for the cake to bake,
I made DUNKIN DONUTS coffee
in my olden CORNING WARE COFFEE POT...
I have this 6 cup size and I also have the larger 10 cup size.
I don't use them very often...only when I am feeling especially nostalgic and sometimes
cool, cloudy weather brings those feelings on...
in a GOOD way.
Cloudy days are my favorite in the whole world.
I got out the sweet FIRE KING cups my friend, AUDREY, sent me. I love these little cups....they are just the right size and I use them almost every morning.
THANK YOU AGAIN, AUDREY. ♥
SMOKEY SAUSAGES, so I warmed some up to go with the coffee cake...
In fact, now that I think about it, there's nothing FANCY in this whole house.
A golden place mat...
....sometimes a tiny bit of bling....
a little BLING never hurt anybody.
