Recipe of The Day: Gasparilla Sweet Cake Bread 

Hi! The other night I recently made sweet cake bread from the Junior League of Tampa’s Gasparilla Cookbook. It was super easy to make and delicious. I actually made it for our first committee meeting of the year so half was gone which is good for me because I can’t eat it all of it 😉
Sweet cinnamon and butter as ingredients you can’t go wrong right?! Plus, since fall is getting back into swing, this is a great recipe for entertaining too. And if you like this recipe and want to see more, you can also get your own copy of the cookbook from the league site. Let me know if you have a favorite cookbook or recipe to make!

Here is what you’ll need:

  • 4 cups of flour
  • 4 tsps of baking powder
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 4 eggs, seperated
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • Cinnamon, butter, sugar

Sift flour once, measure, then sift twice more with baking powder. Cream butter and sugar. Beat egg yolks, add to sugar mixture, then add milk and flour. Beat egg whites stiff, fold in. Add vanilla. Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes. Before the cake is done, spread with cinnamon, butter and sugar.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. I thought it was pretty easy and yummy. Have a great day!
