Thank you to my neighbor for passing this hint along………….

If your cake recipe calls for nuts, heat them first in the oven, then dust with flour before adding to the batter to keep them from settling to the bottom of the pan.

No more stale cake………….

If you need to store cake more than a day or two, put half an apple in the container. The apple will provide just enough moisture to keep the cake from drying out too soon.
