Sister Ford’s (Helen Ford) famous Sock-It-To-Me Cake:
When I was growing up potlucks and family dinners were a weekly occurrence and everyone had a go to dish or family favorite. Helen Ford whom we called Sister Ford was known for her Sock-It-To-Me Cake. I loved this cake, not to sweet but sweet enough where icing was not required.
I was so excited when LaTrice post the Sock-It-To-Me recipe on Facebook as a tribute on Sister Ford’s birthday. Thanks LaTrice. I made this cake for my husband and he loved it.
