Soda Bargain

I know I must have mentioned mine.  I love my Soda Stream.  My particular style is to keep seltzer in the fridge all the time, and add syrup to a glass if I want flavoring  Also, their syrops are made without High Fruictose Corn Syrup, particularly important if you have children, but to you too.  With the rebates on top of a great sale, this is irresistible.  Wish I needed one.

Honestly, I’m not findng anything amazing, that I couldn’t find on any other sale.  Maybe I’m just less interested.  Wait, who am I???

Avon is having sales and free  S&H  on all orders with code cyber13.  Many litle stocking stuffers here.  I’ve been using the Soft & Sensual body wash in the shower, and like it,.  I also like that it hangs.  http://shop.avon.com  This set is a decent deal.  They don’t have Soft and Sensual right now, but I’ll bet this one is good.

I brought this cake Thanksgiving, and don’t know if everyone preferred it to my eggnog cake, but my cousin and I did.  I’m not an icing person, but it is traditionally a layer cake.

Italian Cream Cake
Servings 12

2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup or 2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup buttermilk (or a cup of milk with a squeeze of fresh lemon)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F..

Grease and flour 3 (9-inch) round cake pans.  (I use bundt pan and don’t ice)  Hint:  Use Bakers Joy instead of grease & flour.
Sift dry ingredients together and set aside.  (I whisk)

Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, incorporating each one well before adding the next.

Add vanilla to buttermilk and mix.

Alternate adding wet and dry dry ingredients and stir until well mixed. Fold in nuts and coconut. Pour batter into prepared cakepans. Bake for 25 minutes.  (About 50 minutes for bundt pan.  Check with toothpick.)

Let cakes cool in the pans for about 10 minutes. Remove from the pans to wire racks to cool completely. Frost as desired.
