A typical day on an Amish farm includes waking up before the break of dawn, tending to the animals, making breakfast, and looking after little ones. A woman’s role in an Amish family is usually taking care of meal prep and household duties. A lot of Amish ladies will make cakes, cookies, and pies to sell in their family store. This Lazy Woman cake is a staple on many Amish farms because it is super easy to make and requires minimal ingredients.
Check out what my pal Frannie had to say about this recipe:
This cake turns out so charmingly good! I sometimes like to make two of these yumym desserts nd share one with a friend.
