Notes

We loved this cake so much that on our birthday we were allowed to do withit whatever we wanted (of course we always shared!)

The amount of cake baked has been a source of debate for many years, and now that I make it on my own, I like more of it uncooked than cooked. It can also be simply refrigerated instead of frozen.

A dash of local for every season
