Harvest Dream Cake

Today we’re going to take you way back with a vintage, delicious fall dessert recipe that has been around since the 40’s. Baked using Swans Down Cake Flour, this Harvest Dream Cake is light and soft, with a perfect, airy texture.

With my favorite time of the year quickly approaching, I wanted a dessert that brought in all of the best flavors together and this classic recipe does that deliciously! This cake has been a huge hit with the family, and I’m excited to share it with you today.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cup Swans Down Cake Flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs

Butter Cream Frosting

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 teaspoons milk

Directions:

    1. Stir shortening to soften
    2. Sift in dry ingredients
    3. Add brown sugar
    4. Add 3/4 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla and mix until all flour is dampened
    5. Beat 2 minutes
    6. Add eggs and beat 1 minute longer
    7. Pour cake batter into 2 9″ cake pans and bake at 375° for 25 minutes, or until done
    8. Start on frosting: beat 1/2 cup butter in a large bowl until creamy
    9. Beat in confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and enough milk to achieve desired consistency (usually 5 or 6 teaspoons)
    10. After the cake is done, let cool. Spread buttercream frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake.
    11. Sprinkle crushed almonds around edge of the cake.

Enjoy!
