Faery’s Butter Cake.
Well this not so butter…in fact it has no butter because I used margarine, I love this cake, is so moist, soft and delicious but the best part is: it is very easy to make. Which is good for me because Michele is on vacation, he is a very active boy so I have to look after him 15 hours a day.
