Freedom Cake

They Caught Osama

Not without a bit of drama

I hope the world is a safer place

A hero’s job on a hard case

Freedom is a privileged gift

Those who are jealous try to make a rift

Don’t ever take our rights for granted

Freedom is an idea our forefathers planted

We are the recipients of the fruit of their labor

The envy of many a neighbor

Bake this freedom cake to commemorate

A  job well done, so celebrate!

light creamy batter

This cake is pure and simple.  It can be made with butter instead of margarine, and milk instead of non-dairy creamer.


2 sticks margarine or butter

2 cups sugar plus two tablespoons

4 eggs

1-2 tablespoon vanilla

1 teaspoon salt

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/3 cup non-dairy creamer or milk


Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and flour a Bunt pan. Cream margarine and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat.  Add dry ingredients alternately with non-dairy creamer and beat until a light colored creamy batter forms. Place batter in Bunt pan and bake for 45-55 minutes until tester comes out clean.  Let cool and remove from pan.  Top with raspberries or strawberries or blueberries and whipped cream if desired.
