I was in a cakey mood this morning and wanted to bake something. The lack of butter somehwat cramped my style, but I found a recipe in the Joy of Cooking that I tweaked to suit my needs. It turned out beautifully - moist, rich and spicey-yummy. And there are no eggs, so that is a winner too (as my kids eat so many eggs that I am often short).
My husband says it reminds him of the German cake creations his mum would make for him as a child. Make this. Today.
