This is another of the recipes I got from Octomom on the Practical Homeschooling board of AOL years ago. She had eight children and made a list of about 9 or so recipes that she rotated between for breakfast for her family. She was kind enough to share them with the board.
I’ve seen a few variations of this recipe, including one that used wheat berries and a mill but they are all pretty similar.
Start by melting a stick of butter.
Combine the dry ingredients . . . 1 cup each whole wheat flour, white flour, and sugar with 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt.
Next combine 1 cup milk and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Add it and the melted butter to the dry ingredients and combine.
Spread into a lightly greased 9×13 pan.
Bake in 350º oven for 20-25 minutes. Remove when a cake tester comes out clean. You don’t want it to be dry.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter and pour over the top of the baked cake and spread it around evenly.
