I can be longwinded.
I often AM longwinded.
That is not the case today.
This is the cake I’m baking.
I also made it for Christmas.
And for the Christmas before.
And for the Bean’s birthday.
It’s his favorite.
My mom loves it too.
My parents are coming over for supper tonight, so….
THIS is the cake I’m baking.
One lil note..
When you read the recipe, try NOT to have palpitations.
Yes, it takes just 2 Tablespoons shy of ONE POUND of butter.
However, this cake is HUGE*.
And you’ll only eat a teeny slice b/c of it’s decadent richness.
You’ll have so much you’ll be begging people to take it away.
But you won’t really mean it.
You’ll want to hoard it for yourself.
And hug it, and kiss it, and… you know what kissing cake leads to…..
With a whisk and a dream… Tina
*standard sheet size (aka jelly roll pan) is 10 1/2 x 15 1/2 x 1 – making a HUGE (though thin) cake.
