There being only three of us for that cake, I brought a sizable chunk home in my pan (Sher got out of washing it that way!) and I was going to freeze it. Did I? No. And, I am ashamed to say, I just finished eating it so now it is no longer drawing me to the kitchen to cut off a little piece. Do you suppose if you just cut off a little piece about an inch by three inches that reduces the calories a lot? Only if you only do that maybe twice a day. And last week I had some of the red cake which seemed to evaporate also.
I do console myself that I am getting so old that I should eat pretty much what I want (not go overboard, though!) and not be on a perpetual diet. Food does taste different as you age, but what tastes good tastes really good - like cake! It's the same with housework anymore, I have become so good at not worrying about things being dustfree and shiny. What is important is to feel good for which I thank the good Lord and to enjoy life, my family, and the things I do.
In case you would like to try this cake, I just scanned the recipe from the cookbook I made in '96.
You will need to (click to enlarge) the recipe to read it. I should have put it in larger. There is one thing I want to add and that is the size of the pan. I use what I think is called a jelly roll plan which is quite large and has a raised side all around. I think it would be great to use the large cake pan - 10 x 13 or whatever size that is and bake it longer. Don't use just a regular cookie sheet like I have mentioned in the recipe. Or you can always look it up on the internet and see what they say. Isn't the internet wonderful for recipes?
