Ingredients for Michael’s Mom’s Cake:

  • 2 Boxes Cake Mix (Butter Recipe Flavor)
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 10 Eggs
  • 1 1/4 Cup Oil
  • 2 Cups Sour Cream
1.  Mix together all of the dry ingredients first, just like you would do in any cake recipe.

Ingredients for Michael’s Mother’s Cake Icing Recipe

  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 4 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Cocoa
  • Evaporated Milk
1.  Beat together the butter, powdered sugar and cocoa.  Louise Strahan said that she never really measures the powdered sugar, so you can use more or less than 4 cups depending on how sweet you like your icing.
2.  Gradually add in the evaporated milk and continue to beat the icing.  How much evaporated milk?  Good thing Michael Strahan answered this question on Twitter!  He said that you should keep adding evaporated milk until you reach the consistency that you like.

  1. says

    She baked it for one hour at 350 degrees. The cake pan size looks like the size of the pan you would bake macaroni and cheese in. Prett big. The pan was full.

  2. Jackie Helzer says

    This cake was amazing. However I live in Colorado and want to know if there needs to be a high altitude adjustment. When I took it out f oven it fell. also check it after 50 minutes, edges a little too brown. Still a delicios moist cake

  3. says

    The cake can be baked in a 9×13 pan, though if you want a thinner cake, you can put it into a larger pan or you could even make two 8″ or 9″ square or round cakes. Of course the baking time will have to be altered depending on the size of the pan that you use.

  4. MaryBeth McCall says
