Aunt Sadie


The oldest sister and the maker of Devil's Food Cake with brown sugar icing, my favorite. My mother used to say that Sadie kept her kitchen floor so clean that we could eat off it. We always took our shoes off in her house. Her daughter, Essie Mae, had a play house in the back yard that I coveted. It was large and wonderful. A child could have lived in it and had it for a house of their own.

I wonder if the cake was the same that Aunt Essie use to make? It was to die for ~ I only remember Aunt Sadie and her cute house on the corner. By the way, which is still there, as well as Grandmother's home - and if we remember they were so large - looking at them now they are small boxes.
