Praise The Lord Preacher Cake

My Aunt Joan lived right down the street from us when we were growing up. She was actually a great-aunt, because she was the real aunt to my father. All of her kids were grown and gone by the time we moved into the neighborhood. You could tell that she missed them though, because she always did whatever she could to get us to come and spend time with her. Usually, she would lure us in with a yummy dessert. She started with cookies, but that didn’t always work because we would grab one or two and then go right back outside playing.

Then she switched to cakes. This one cake that she made, had me sitting around for hours. It was so good, I never wanted to stop eating it. It was just like this cake that I found on South Your Mouth. It was so moist, sweet, and delicious, that’s all she had to say was she was making cake and we would bring all the kids in the neighborhood over to her place for a piece.

She just lit up with all of us in her house. Now when I make it, I think back to those fun years and precious moments with great Aunt Joan.

Quick Tip: Toss in some raisins before baking.



I don’t see one. Here’s my favorite one though: 4 cups powdered sugar, 2 8-oz packages cream cheese (room temp), 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temp), 4 tsps. vanilla extract. Blend all ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Enjoy!

My favorite cream cheese frosting is 2 packages cream cheese softened, 1-8 oz. container of cool whip and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Whip the cheese and cool whip well, then blend in the sugar.

Looks to me like there is a dark ingredient in the cake like a raisin or a chocolate chip. Was an ingredient left out? Doesn’t look like pecan or pineapple.

Joyce. cream cheese frosting is very easy. you just need cream cheese and powdered sugar and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla depending on how much you make. you can also add a teaspoon or 2 of butter if you like a buttery flavor. It takes roughly 2 cups of powdered sugar if you use a whole brick of cream cheese. Just add sugar until it’s the consistency you like.

Home made cake, but canned cream cheese frosting from a manufacturer. Ok. I had all the ingredients to try it today, but no cream cheese frosting. Guess I will wait. Thanks for the cake recipe. Looks delicious. Can’t wait to try it.

If you have cream cheese, powdered sugar, and butter, you can easily make your own frosting using a hand mixer 🙂 Hope this helps. 8 oz. brick cream cheese (room temp) 2.5 cups powdered sugar, and 1/2 cup butter (room temp).

Not printer friendly in the least! Who has the time to write all the info down, not me. Too bad as it looks tasty. Until your layout is reformatted I’ll get it from another site that is printer friendly.

I made it with 1 1/2 cup sugar only and brought it to work. My co workers love it. It was the first time they heard about preachers cake

made this cake for my husband, he loved it (so did my daughter and myself), no raisins for me though. I did make my own cream cheese frosting, very simple to make……1 (8oz block) cream cheese, softened..1 stick (1/2 cup) margarine, softened and I tsp. vanilla, beat together until smooth then beat in 2 cups of powdered sugar- 1 cup at a time, beat until smooth and of spreading consistency……simple as that.

I have this recipe but I’ve never made the cake. I only printed it out for the cream cheese frosting to use it for a Hot Milk Cake.

I’ve made this cake several times. It’s a hit. I don’t use coconut. Those are not raisins.The acid in the juice causes the pecans to turn dark but doesn’t alter the taste.
