“Singing” Cake

Preparation Time: 15 minutesCooking Time: 45 minutes

This is a great cake to bake when small children are around because it actually makes a "singing" sound as it bakes.

The cake that sings to you and yours. This fun cake is known to whistle and sputter when you cook it and sometimes for a bit after you pull it out of the oven. A great bit of fun if you have young ones around.

Let’s cook some food that sings to you of its deliciousness.
