In this interesting Kentucky butter cake, it seems all the ingredients go in at once. Then the batter is beaten and poured in the pan, and came out as the most beautiful cake. As soon as it’s out you poke it full of holes and pour over a vanilla butter syrup, which soaks through. I’m grateful that it has to cool at least three hours before coming out of the pan. It’s better if I wait til morning to eat some instead of right before bed. I’m grateful for the transformation of simple ingredients into something spectacularly different. I’m grateful for the transformation I’ve undergone in the past few years of living with mindfulness.
