Time to take a break from the serious blog subjects.
Time for sharing one of our favorite family recipes, Hawaiian wedding cake.
I discovered this recipe about twenty years ago, from where I don't remember. This is the favorite cake recipe of this house. I've made a few tweaks to this recipe over the years to suite our particular tastes.
And now I am happy to share our favorite cake recipe with everyone.
