Earthquake Cake | Home Remedies

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! The last few weekends we have been celebrating birthdays with family (a lot of February/March birthdays in our family), and that means lots and lots of cake! This past weekend it was my turn to bake the birthday cake, and knowing the birthday girl wouldn’t mind, I went with a nontraditional, easy to make, yet super yummy option; Earthquake Cake. There are a lot of different recipes out there for this cake, but this is the one that my family has used for the last few decades, and it always seems to please.
