Moist Kentucky Butter Cake

It’s interesting… A lot of states North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kentucky, etc. don’t really exist for me most of the time. Our country is so large. I don’t really know anyone in those areas, and I’ve never traveled there. I don’t really know about the culture of those states. BUT! What I do know about myself is that when I think of patriotic gatherings and 4th of July cookouts, I think of The South, and I know that I include what I think Kentucky would look like during those times. I suppose I should leave my beloved PNW home a little more and explore more of the country, huh?

Honestly, if all the food is like this amazing butter cake, I must visit Kentucky and other states in the area. It’s moist and delicious. Had you told me that I’d enjoy something called butter cake when I was in high school, I wouldn’t have believed you. It sounds weeeeeird, but it’s absolutely delicious! 

If you’re looking for a tasty and moist cake, this is the recipe you want! This would be an amazing 4th of July dessert, assuming your party isn’t too big. Heck, even if it is a large party, bring it as a potluck item. People will love it!
