Let's Celebrate with Sweet Liberty Cakes


I originally made these last summer while at Better Farm in Redwood, Ny.  My friend and I wanted to get away and try a bit o' farming.  It was only two weeks, but looking back now, I have so many wonderful memories.  As this summer approaches, my mind is swimming with new things to try and new places to go.

I like the square shape of these cakes- it's nice to change things up a bit.  They take longer to bake because they're all squished together in a baking dish.  You can easily use a muffin tray instead and reduce the baking time to 20-25 minutes.

Have a great weekend!
