I've seen this recipe popping up on foodgawker recently and I just knew that I had to try it... it looked SO delicious.. how can I pass up on that? I got this recipe from food librarian but many other foodblogger hv made this cake as well.. This cake is moist, fluffy, mild, delicious and festive... Not too sweet, not too rich, not to spicy - just perfect!
One thing for sure this recipe is pretty simple! Don’t need a mixer... no need to prepare ingredients to room temp... easy? hb ate 2 slices at one go.. see see my nbr one critic love it!!
