Have you ever heard of the 1-2-3-4 cake? Recently I was at a weekend gathering and next thing we knew our friends were getting married, it was so beautiful! Meanwhile Nancy, the bride, had made the most amazing, moist yellow cake that I had ever had…ever!
Someone asked me about the photo I posted about the cake so joking around I said “it’s probably one of those 1 cup of sugar, 2 sticks of butter cakes”…I came home and did research and there it was…recipes all over the internet for the 1-2-3-4 cake. It is 1 cup of sugar, 2 cups of butter, 3 cups of flour and 4 eggs, how funny was that.
This is not my original recipe and I can’t tell you exactly where it started but I can share that it’s all over the internet and it’s the exact same recipe (I’m guessing it’s from the south as most southern recipes are exactly the same).
Here is the 1 cup of butter and 2 cups of sugar
This while this 1-2-3-4 cake is delicious, it wasn’t Nancy’s recipe and I will be asking for her recipe! If you are wanting to impress someone with a homemade cake, this recipe is the one to use as you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry and who doesn’t love a homemade cake?
