I love my old fashion recipe collection, especially the cakes.  If you think it is too much trouble to make a cake from scratch, you are wrong.  Try these delicious old fashion cakes for some great desserts.  How about a Maple Syrup Cake for something different?  Anything with maple syrup brings back wonderful memories to me.  When I was growing up in Southern Indiana, one of the farmers in the area had a maple sugar camp on his property.  Every Fall he would hold a community weiner roast at the camp and the men would help stir the cooking syrup while the women served food and we kids played with our friends by running up and down the hillside.  It is another one of my favorite childhood memories.  It was so much fun and a good lesson, too, seeing how the syrup we enjoyed on our pancakes was made.  The Birdie Cake is also a Southern Indiana favorite.  I guess it was our version of the Southern favorite Hummingbird Cake.

2 eggs
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup real maple syrup
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
powdered sugar for garnish

Combine eggs and brown sugar in a mixing bowl and mix well.  Stir in the maple syrup, baking powder, baking soda, and sour cream.  Add the flour and vanilla while mixing well.  Pour into a greased oblong cake pan (9 x 13).  Bake cake at 325 degrees for approximately 40 minutes or until it tests done.  Cool on a wire rack.  To garnish, dust with powdered sugar if desired.

Cut into 24 squares.

2 cups sugar

2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2-lb can crushed pineapple with juice (don't drain)
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract

Cream the eggs and sugar together.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well blended.  Pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.

1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3-oz pkg cream cheese
1/2 lb powdered sugar

Soften the butter and cream cheese to room temperature.  Add the vanilla and powdered sugar.  Spread on the cake while the cake is still warm.

This makes a very moist cake yet uses very little fat.
