Let Them Eat Cake! 2

OK. the cake is ready and Mrs DB just brought me a hot slice to try. Being brave I didn't take a little nibble, I took a fairly standard sized mouthful. It tasted like banana loaf to me.

"OK", I said, "it tastes fine what have you put in it?"

"What do you think?"

"I dunno"

"I put almond essence in it instead of vanilla essence."

Wot! Like I'm supposed to notice that! I mean, what are we talking about here - 2 or so drops of something that has been in the cupboard since about 1873 and probably doesn't taste of anything anyway. I'm just happy to have some cake!

Home-made cake....... oooooohhhhh..... Has she tried orange water? A taste of the Mediterranean - and Aegean?
Better still, take a look at http://www.101cookbooks.com/
I may never actually cook, but I get Heidi Swanson in my email once a week, and it's a calorie-free treat!
