Still Baking & Cooking

Don't you just love freshly baked bread! I love to smell the yeast, and watch it as it rises in the oven. This loaf is rather large because I'd forgotten I'd loan my pans out to Mom, so I just made the large loaf.
This is the meal that I'm serving for lunch today. Not too heavy, but very tasty! Louisiana Grilled Chicken, Peppers and Onions Po-Boys, Baked Potato stuffed with Sour Cream and Chives.

Oh you know how I love my desserts with coffee! This meal was no exception. I baked this spice cake with a spiced buttercream frosting!
1-1/2 cups Butter-soften
4-1/2 cups sifted Powdered Sugar
2-Tablespoon Orange Juice
3/4-teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves


Combine butter and powered sugar. Cream together until light and fluffy. Add the Orange Juice. Beat until spreading consistency. Beat in the spices until smooth. Yields: 3 1/2 cups to frost the cake. I know these recipes are not too healthy, but man are they good! I wish you could join me for lunch!

    Have a blessed day.
