Now That’s a Birthday Cake

The Banana Pudding Cake recipe from the April Carolina Country magazine (“Where to Go for Good Eats,” page 64) gets rave reviews! It made the perfect birthday cake for James King’s 54th birthday. Thanks!

Why I Love my Co-op

I look forward to receiving Carolina Country each month. I find it very informative and enjoyable and always enjoy the recipes that are published. I have made several of these, which have become my favorites. 

I loved “Great Gardens” in the March issue (page 14) — the beautiful photos and stories behind them. I always love all the articles, especially “Where Life Takes Us” and “I Remember.” Thank you for choosing mine for the March issue (“The True Grit of Granny Roten,” page 28). I continue to get a lot of feedback from my article.

In February 2001, readers were asked to respond and tell “Why I love my electric co-op.” Mine was among those selected then, too. I can honestly say my electric co-op has only continued to get better.

Editor’s Note: In Ann’s 2001 submission about her co-op, she said about Blue Ridge Energy (Blue Ridge Electric at the time): “They go the extra distance to provide all their customers with energy, efficient and affordable service — especially the ones such as myself who are on a limited income. When a problem occurs, they come and listen with interest and show you respect.”

Corrections to our April Issue:

In our April 2017 Carolina Country Adventures section, please note the following corrections: The Uwharrie Mountains (“Off-Roading, Uwharrie Style,” page 60) span Randolph, Montgomery, Stanly and Davidson counties, but not so far east as neighboring Moore County. All-day fishing admission for children 12 and under at Jennette’s Pier (“New Life for an Old Pier,” page 69) is $6, not $67.

Sheila Morton, a long-time member of Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative, contacted us in search of a recipe she saved from Carolina Country shortly after she was married. After some digging, we found the recipe in the “Kitchen Corner” section of our November 1972 issue. 

The recipe originally came from Mrs. Linda Lee Cowan of Polkton, who said at the time: “This recipe is unique in that it was given to me by the owner of a large hotel in eastern North Carolina… The rolls were so good that people would stop at the hotel just to eat them with hot coffee.”
