This Do Nothing Cake is a very old fashioned cake your family will love. This dessert gets its name because it originated in the 1940’s and recipes were usually made from scratch, had a lot of ingredients, and hard to make. This one is very easy, takes no time to throw it together, and is so delicious. You just mix this one with a spoon. It makes a great dessert to take to any event and is wonderful for any holiday gathering. You will get asked for the recipe over and over again and you won’t have any leftovers to take home. My family loves this cake and it is one of our favorites. You might also enjoy our recipe for this fabulous lemon cake.
