[I thought that I photographed this recipe. Apparently I didn’t. That will be addressed later.]
I’m tempted to call this the cursed cake.
I tried getting this cake made for a year. Every time something happened.
It started with last year’s round of 31 Days of Baking. This was the cake that I was making when my oven burned out. Then it was a series of missteps up until I finally got it out of the oven, including walking into my kitchen and found that my stove top had gotten warm enough that my butter was sitting in a puddle of oil.
This cake has been slowly wandering around the Internet, but I found it via Food for a Hungry Soul. Lore has it that it’s a 100 year old recipe.
