No Tube Pan

If you don’t own a tube pan and you are making a cake that calls for one, use this simple tip.  Set an empty, clean metal food can inside of a deep cake pan. Fill it with dried beans so it will not move around.  Then grease the sides of the pan and the can and pour in the cake batter around the can.

We have been having a ball in the kitchen with Maurice. He found a bunch of his mothers recipes and brought them to us. We made his mothers cinnamon roll cake and it was delicious. We will post the recipe later. Check out Mo Mo doing his famous dance the Bus Driver.
