I had to put these pictures in. These French lilacs grow right outside my breakfast room. They are a gorgeous deep purple. Last fall my husband cut them quite low because the bush was getting quite large and when it rained it was leaning right to the ground. So.......this year we got a small amount of blooms but next year it will be nice and full.
In two days when the sun was shining and it was warm the French Lilacs opened to this gorgeous deep purple colour.
This cake is from one of the other boards I'm on and it came from Anne of Thibeault's Table and she got it from a 1985 Canadian Living Magazine.
This cake is very light and delish.........I always have these ingredients on hand and it was quick and esay to make.
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sour cream
1 cup raspberries
In a bowl sift flour, baking powder, soda and salt.
In another bowl beat butter and sugar til' creamy and add eggs.
Beat well and add vanilla.
Mix in flour and sour cream.
Fold in raspberries.
Pour into a 9 inch springform pan and bake 35 to 40 minutes or til' done.
*****I have also substituted the berries for blueberries and it was very delish too....or for company I've added a dollop of whipped creme.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
