    This is very similar to what my family called a Buttermilk sheeth cake. Very rich and reminds me of a brownie.

    In a number of episodes, I have seen Michelle and Anna use a mixer or food processor to make cookies and other baked goods. It has a bowl with lid, and a whisk attachment and probably other blades or beaters. Can we get a brand/model name for these appliances?

    Hi Anonymous 9,

    Both Michelle and Anna have Bosch mixers that they use to make bread and other baked goods. Sounds like that's what you saw.

    What about the icing? ?.. This recipe is awesome for a huge potluck at church. But there isn't any instructions for the icing :(

    Can you replace the Oleo with butter?
    Does this recipe work if you make smaller portions? Like small loaves or cupcakes?

    I am always looking for special recipes for our Firefighters baking and often provide a nice cake verses cookies for Christmas Day. We bake for each holiday and for all the houses.
    Thank you for the ideas

    Hi Anonymous 13,

    Yes, you can replace Oleo with butter. Sorry for the delayed response! We were in Arkansas all weekend for Jill's wedding. :)

    Hi, not to be too nitpicky, but did anyone notice that step 5 is missing out of the recipe? hopefully it tells you when to add the buttermilk, baking soda, eggs and vanilla!
