Mom’s Cake

Mom’s Cake

The Family Birthday Cake

This is a family secret! I had to twist mom's arm to share this recipe with you! My late Grandma (dad's mom) used to make this cake for my dad's birthday every year. When my parents married, my Grandma taught my mother the recipe.

My mom made this cake for my birthday. I posted the photo on social media, which prompted multiple requests for mom to share this recipe.

It's not the typical recipe I post on my website. Normally my recipes are high in protein and low in sugar. But, if you are following my Fat Loss Fast System, this recipe would be great for your daily discretionary calories. Furthermore, it's surprisingly low in calories!

Stop Dieting:

If you want to stop dieting,  ... then check out my Fat Loss Fast System.  It's my common sense approach to eating because your diet shouldn't be a full-time job and it shouldn't cause anxiety. You can also sign up for my free intermittent fasting tutorials here.

It's my 10-minute HOME video workout program. It combines strength training, jump rope training and pilates. I teach you how to breathe during your workouts, how to activate your muscles (including your pelvic floor), how to move within your current mobility, and most importantly, mindset training! This is a mind and body transformation.  All I need from you is 10 minutes a day for the next 30 days

  2. my daughters sweet 16 birthday is coming up on the 24th… making this…will post my attempt…for better or worse….your Mom is so funny… her “fasting” licks of the spoon…

  3. So, I’ve been sick all week & had to wait to try my hand @ Mom’s cake. ;))
    The baker in me wouldn’t let me make a box cake, so I changed it up a bit ;))
    I layered it with Angel & Devil’s cake & added Fresh Strawberries to the middle 😉
    A little extra calories…. But I used Apple sauce instead of oil & egg whites instead of the whole egg. I’ll post a pic later today.
    Thanks to Mom Solomon for this super recipe, can’t wait to eat some ;))

  4. My firsts attempt, not so great …… Couldn’t find dream wip so I used something called whip it .& …forgot the coffee….. Mixed angel & Devils cake. It was just ok …..
    Second times the charm ;))
    Found dream wip,….. yeah…….& remembered the coffee 😉
    tastes so much better then the whip it!
    mixed the topping & it’s been in fridge overnight, Cake is cooling ;)) I’ll post pics later ;))

  5. I love her secret of being married for 44 years! Your momma is awesome!

  6. You two make great videos together, very entertaining! I can’t wait to make this cake. If only I could download a piece to eat 🙂
