This is a very nice cake, simple, delicious … just enough sweetness. For me, I love to enjoy it plain with a fresh cup of brewed coffee because it isn’t so overpowering in flavor that the coffee takes a back seat.

The last thing you want on your fresh organic salad is tired old dressing….. Or, just as bad, some secret flavor packet that you “easily” add oil and vinegar to and shake.
