Best Butterscotch Cake Recipe: A Moist Butterscotch Cake Recipe Full of Family Memories

Every year since 1914 my dad’s family has gathered at my great-grandfather Billy’s old pasture in Rex, Georgia, on the Sunday in July closest to Billy’s birthday. Big farming families were the norm. Billy had 11 children, my dad had 6 siblings and just our branch of the family alone numbered 25 first cousins. Throw in spouses and the next generation, and there were often 200 people there, from babies to octogenarians.

Kids of all ages played in the creek, and the older folks sat in lawn chairs and reminisced. These Clark family reunions combine fun, memories and quite an impressive spread of food set out on a long string of wide tables. Many of the dishes were known by who brought them – Uncle Stafford’s Brunswick beef stew, Aunt Nancy’s coconut cake, Bernice’s caramel cake, Aunt Martha’s pineapple sandwiches (my dad’s favorite!), etc.

With that kind of cooking tradition, I wanted something that would be easy to make and might be a little different from the umpteen amazing desserts sure to be there. This butterscotch cake recipe came from a coworker, and it became my go-to dish for the reunions!

Love the story about your family reunions and family recipes. We had the same thing. Big family reunions and we'd always look forward to certain family members bringing their recipe we loved. I am intrigued by the pineapple sandwiches! Hope you'll share the recipe! I have pictures like that on my wall of my grandma and grandpa. They are the best pictures. Cherished. Melissa Vickers
