Today, I’m sharing one of my mom’s favorite desserts, the 3-Egg Cake made by her friend, Itsume. This buttery cake is not overly sweet and pairs perfectly with hot coffee or a glass of Real California Milk.
Honestly, I forgot about this cake until last year when I received my mom’s recipe box that was left behind in Hawaii. Since then, this 3-egg cake has been on my ‘to make’ list for quite some time. I finally decided to make it when I learned that I could help families affected by the California wildfires and flood victims in Texas and Florida just by baking it!
#AD- Did you know there’s an easy way to help support those affected by the CA wildfires & TX/FL floods?! Just snap a pic of the Real California Milk Seal, then share it using #SealsForGood, and @RealCalifMilk will donate $5 to the Great American Milk Drive (up to $10k in CA & $20k in TX/FL) to help those in need. Post now til 12/31. Visit the link in my bio to learn more about the Seals for Good campaign.
Since this cake is made from scratch, all I had to do was make sure I purchased butter and milk with the Real California Milk Seal printed on the package. Then, I took a picture of the seal and posted it on Instagram with the hashtag #SealsForGood. That’s it!
Post from now until December 31, 2017 and Real California Milk will donate $5 to the Great American Milk Drive (up to $20K in TX/FL and $10K in CA) to help communities affected by the California wildfires and hurricanes Harvey and Irma in Texas and Florida. I love that I can help my own California community and contribute to the Great American Milk drive just by buying quality products made with Real California Milk! Now, let’s get to the recipe!
