Get lost in great cakes

By Olivia Fowler

Some of these recipes go back a long way.

One of my all-time favorites is the old-fashioned pineapple upside-down cake my grandmother used to make in a cast-iron frying pan. This was a specialty of hers for Sunday night suppers. It never lasted long enough to make leftovers.

The upsy daisy cake was popular in the 1930s, and there are versions of this recipe in old cookbooks.

The banana split cake is easy to make and is a really decadent dessert, and the black bottom cupcakes are popular party fare.

None of this stuff is calorie-free, but sometimes you have to let it go out the window and just enjoy.

The stair climb saw participants climb the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center.

“That man up there on the hill, he used to go to school here, and

A reminder — National Newspaper Week is Oct. 4-10.

National Cheeseburger Day was a recent event, and it prompted me to go out and get a cheeseburger. Newspapers are far more important to recognize, and they aren’t as fattening.

Let me prompt you to please take time to think about what your local newspaper means to your community
