Lazy Daisy Cake


No one has ever made this cake as well as my grandma did, she was the best baker I have ever known. Her best talent was pie crust and she didn't even have to use a food processor like I do. This cake is a cross between a white cake and a yellow cake. It is very moist and dense, it pairs perfectly with a rich chocolate frosting.

Hi!
Your cake looks tasty, and I would love to try this recipe sometime, only I have a question: Is that really "2 tablespoons" butter? Seems like a very small amount for a 2-layer cake. Are you willing to clear this up for me?

Thank you and have a wonderful day!
