Good morning my friends and happy Sunday. I so love weekends – truly – they are my favorite time with my family. I love how laxidazical they are. Our time seems to be our own and we do with it what we please. We also eat. A lot. I love preparing big farmhouse breakfasts and planning for wonderful leisurely dinners. On these wet cold winter days I also enjoy spending my afternoons in our kitchen, listening to my French music sent to me by my sweet friends while baking cakes, or pies, or cookies. It is my happy place.
This is a cake I made recently that was quite a hit with the boys on the farm. I found it here and made a few minor changes. I didn’t use red beets as I had found some fabulous golden beets at the farmer’s market. It is dense and not overly sweet – until you add the frosting that is. It is also really moist (and I know how much my friend Jeanne likes moist cake). I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
