Notice: Due to the massive redesign and creation of Burckhardt Books, some internal links in blogs posted before January 24, 2022 may no long be active. If you find a broken link, please send us an email and let us know which blog it is in. We will do our best to go back and check links in previous blogs as time permits. But let's be honest, it's going to be slow going. 

Whatever Wednesday!

Granny (Arlene Polk) and Dianne Burckhardt taken on Granny's 99th birthday.

Hello Posse!

As we work to figure out better ways to engage with all of you without boring you to death with just information on Stephen and his books, we are trying new things in the blog. One of our new additions is Whatever Wednesday.

On Whatever Wednesday, we might post a guest blogger, recipes, info on other historical fiction/western books we recommend, basically just whatever we are thinking about at the time.

Today, I (Dianne Burckhardt) wanted to share a recipe with all of you. Our family's version of this recipe comes from the WWII era of the USA when things were rationed. My granny often made this cake when I was growing up. If you like spice cake, this one is soooo good! And for those who have food allergies, it is vegan so you can avoid a lot of allergens. If you change the flour, you could even make this gluten free.

The recipe link that I am posting in this blog is not our exact family recipe because I promised Granny I would never share hers outside of the family. However, I found one on that is very close and should taste the same.

This cake is called the Eggless, Milkless, Butterless Cake (<-- Click to go to recipe). People in my family used to beg Granny to make it for every holiday, birthday, or just a normal day, because it is just that good and the house smells amazing while you are making it. Smells like the holidays.

I hope you will give it a try and let us know in the comments what you thought and don't forget to get your Halloween Treat (<--Click to go) from Stephen.

On October 26th & 27th, Stephen is giving away a free download of the complete ebook edition of the first book in his Into the West Saga Serial, Into the West: The Orphan Train which is a 2019 finalist in the TopShelf Indie Book Awards. So mark your calendars and don't miss out!
