Sour Cream Cake with Caramel Frosting
This is a total grandma recipe and I love it so much. I found this in my Grandma Marian's recipes she gave me and honestly, I have no memory of her making this one but it just sounded too good not to try. And actually, the recipe card doesn't even really look like her handwriting, so this may be from someone else's Grandma entirely. So whichever Grandma is out there that passed this recipe on, I thank you. This is yummy.
Why is Grandma food so good? Do you think it will be the same when our kids get older and talk about our recipes or is this just their generation type of thing? I would say that it's because food was more from scratch, but there are a lot of my Grandma's recipes that required blueberry jello, instant pudding and lipton soup mix so that can't be it. Maybe its just because at my grandparents houses, there weren't a lot of rules so everything was just better.
Sugar? Sure thing! Roller skate in the house, absolutely! Go Cart down a steep driveway and scrape your face up. Check! (I survived unscathed, no worries.)
I paired this with my caramel frosting which is my favorite frosting of all time. I could put this frosting on a shoe and be totally happy. If you do nothing else today, make this frosting. It's that good. It hardens pretty quickly though so you have to work fast after mixing it.
