“A relatively quick and easy cake, with a dynamite taste! During the school year (my husband and I are both teachers), things get a little hectic with grading exams, papers, and projects...plus my son Jake is starting pre-school in a few weeks...so I'm glad to have some fast, reliable goodies on hand that don't take too much time to make or require a lot of fuss. Try it once--you'll see;)”
