Retro Recipe #1 Butter Cake

Alright guys here it is, the first Retro Recipe. 

If you are wondering what a Retro Recipe is click HERE

In an effort to avoid spending money and the grocery store I chose this recipe. 

In my Big Bag O' Recipes there were two Butter Cake recipes.

I chose the Mel Huther recipes because if was easier to read. 
Here's the breakdown:

Here is everything you need. See why I didn't have to go to thew store? 
Mix the first four ingredients together, the batter was very thick. 

Spread the batter into a 9X13 in greased pan

Insert image that I forgot to take here.

Next combine the last four ingredients together, slowly adding the powdered sugar so that your kitchen does not look like a crack house. 

Spread this sticky mixture over the batter. 

Bake at 350° for 40 minutes. When the recipe said exactly 40 minutes they weren't kidding. 
Thinking about it I could check to make sure the edges aren't getting to crispy around 35 minutes. 

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and let cool. 

Cut into squares and serve. 

This cake was very rich and moist. However it was missing something. I think next time I would serve it with fresh berries and maybe even whip cream.
