I have finally found an excuse to bake. The friends we're having dinner with on Sunday have asked us to bring dessert, and I was thrilled to agree. Plus, the friends are our neighbors so I can even put the cake on our lovely cake stand and just carry it next door, instead of having to pack it in something more practical like a tupperware container.
So! Now I need recipes. Maybe this is gruesome, but this is the same family who lost their baby last summer, and after that happened I baked them a cake using my standard recipe, and I don't want to bring that cake to them again in case it reminds them of that experience, you know?
So, Stephanie, who is also a master baker, suggested this recipe to me, and I am leaning toward using it, despite the fact that is has coffee in it and I hate coffee, only because Stephanie also hates coffee and she still swears that the cake is delicious. But before I commit completely (by which I mean, purchase the ingredients I don't already have on hand), I thought I'd take a wider poll.
What's your favorite cake recipe? All suggestions are welcome!
