Mother's Day Recipe


Mother’s Day Recipe

Mother's Day is a celebration honoring mothers and celebrating motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, yet most commonly in March, April, or May. Celebrations of mothers and motherhood occur throughout the world; many of these can be traced back to ancient festivals, like the Greek cult to Cybele or the Roman festival of Hilaria.

The U.S celebration isn’t directly descending from these ancient celebrations, but the spirits of these holidays are celebrated in the U.S.’s version of it. Here is a sweet and simple Mother’s Day recipe your mom will surely love!


Mother’s Day Pound Cake


(Serves about 8)


Ingredients:


·         1 teaspoon butter
·         1 cup butter
·         1 1/3 cups Organic evaporated Cane Juice sugar
·         2 teaspoons vanilla extract
·         4 eggs
·         1/4 teaspoon  Citrus salt
·         1 lemon, zested
·         4 cups sifted all purpose flour, 2/3 cupsAmaranth flour
·         2 teaspoons baking powder
·         1/2 cup milk


Directions:


1.       Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 1/2-inch square baking pan with 1 teaspoon butter and set aside.
2.       Melt 1 cup butter in a saucepan over low heat; stir in the sugar until thoroughly combined. Stir in the vanilla. Whisk in the eggs, one by one, whisking well between each egg. Stir in the salt and lemon zest. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
3.       In a separate bowl, sift the flour and baking powder together. Gently stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Stir in the milk, folding the batter lightly with a spatula until thoroughly combined. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
4.       Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; invert the cake onto a second wire rack and let cool completely.
