Cane Syrup Cake

Nothing says fall in the country like a slice of sugar cane syrup cake still warm from the cast iron skillet – smeared with sweet cream butter. One bite and you’ll find yourself transported to a “boiling house” of cut stone with a long handled spoon and the hum of bees drawn to the scent of the steaming sugary goodness.

As the cane syrup cake melts on your tongue, you can almost picture the mule running the mill as washed sugarcane is chopped by the revolving blades and then crushed.

This is a definite must try. I have made skillet cakes before, but not one like this. Yum.

My husband LOVES this cake. I always make it with buttered rum but choose your own adventure on that one. Goodness, I love the old fashioned recipes. Those flavors speak to my soul. You know? Thank you Tipper, Crossview, and Fishing Guy! Blessings, Lacy
