The grocery store on our new side of town has an aisle for “new age” drinks.
I don’t know exactly what they mean by that (the same aisle also has soft drinks and other stuff), but I laugh a little every time I walk past the sign.
There is nothing new-agey about this cake. You might even call it old fashioned.
It’s pretty, but in a humble, wholesome sense — a single layer cake that mixes up quickly and that you can serve straight from the pan.
If your idea of a good cake is more along the lines of a triple layer, pink frosting and luster dust kind of confection (of if you’re into new age cakes, whatever they might be), this sort of cake might never catch your eye.
You probably don’t need me to tell you whose loss that would be.
