Oh those kids...

In the past two weeks, I've had the awesome privilege of being mentioned on two different blogs. That's a pretty great honor! Kelly at Between the Lines features different recipes each Friday and I was honored that she allowed me to share my Grandma's Milky Way Cake recipe with her readers. I know a few of you too have asked about this delicious cake lately, so here is the recipe! It completely goes against the yeast-free lifestyle I've basically stopped living (*sigh*)...but it makes up for it in so many ways!! If you're doing Weight Watchers, one piece is 12 points, and let me tell you this cake is worth EVERY.SINGLE.POINT.! Check out Kelly's blog! Here is the post about Mammaw's Milky Way Cake.

I gave the Trendy Blog Award to Deana at Mom's The Glue earlier this week. She's the one who allowed me to design some buttons for her. She then rewarded me by writing a really sweet post about it, displaying the buttons. Check that out here.

I tested out a new recipe today. I was looking for a quick brownie recipe, one that I had all the ingredients for! I got out my trusty Betty Crocker cookbook and found a recipe for Butterscotch Brownies. I took that recipe and added a couple of my own ingredients and the result? Amazing! Want the recipe?

Butterscotch Brownies

1/4 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of square pan (8x8x2). Melt butter in 1 1/2 quart saucepan over low heat; remove from heat. Stir in brown sugar, vanilla and egg. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread in pan (batter will be thick). Bake 25 minutes. Cool slightly then cut into squares while warm. Makes 16-25 brownies.


  1. i love your background it is SO cute!!

  2. Although I didn't think it could better than your Milky Way Cake, these brownies might just be. Anything with the words butterscotch and brownies has to be great, right!?!

  3. I just checked out your buttons, and you did a fabulous job. Oh, to be so talented... :)

  4. that picture is making my mouth water!!!!!!!
    Oh my, just saw your milky way recipe. I just gained 10 lbs reading it:O)!!!!

  5. Yes, I certainly believe the Milky Way Cake has the ability to subliminally pack on the pounds...it's THAT good!

  6. OMG....I really need to join WW! This isn't helping!
