TBT: Conversation at our House

Girls have liked The Brother since pretty much pre-school. This was a conversation he had with his Dad back in 4th grade.

The Doctor: "How was your day at school J?"
The Brother: "Fine. The girls said I was handsome."
The Doctor: "The girls said you were handsome?"
The Brother: "Yes, they said I was handsome and then they chased me because they said they wanted me and so I dashed away."

Victoria Sponge Cake

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
3 eggs

Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, mix well. Add flour, mix til blended. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 pan. Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes.

Serve plain or frost with Homemade Frosting.

Holly's Notes:
This recipe came from my British mother-in-law and is the base for The Doctor's Christmas Trifle, which I really need to get posted. The Boy, however, loves this cake plain, straight out of the pan. He can eat the whole pan himself.

It's yummy and easy and often requested at our house. Flavor-wise it's very reminiscent of pound cake.
