Texas Two-Step Cake

Welcome to our blog!  Eleven years ago, our family left the hustle and bustle of the big city.  Don't get me wrong.  I love to visit the city.  It has so much to offer.  We just find that it is best enjoyed in small servings like a very rich dessert.  But, the day-to-day peace and quiet of country livin' just can't be beat!   You will find a variety of subjects and topics related to The 4 Fs - faith, family (especially kids), food and the farm.  We hope you stop by again sometime.  I expect the next recipe will be a lot healthier.  This post falls into that category of a rare unusually rich dessert.

Recently, we had a lunch fundraiser at our church for some of our college students to attend a Spring Break event called Beach Reach at South Padre Island.  Our congregation was amazingly generous and it allowed a number of students to attend.  Several of the students had obediently gone through the training and were praying about where the funding was going to come from for them to attend.  Our church and family came through in a big way and were an answer to many prayers!

We made a Texas Two-Step Cake for the luncheon dessert and it was a hit.  For those that requested it, here ya go.  Enjoy and thank you, again!
