One of the wonderful things about asking those we love, those who have cooked for us for a recipe, is that it always comes with a story.
I asked Aunt Ruth for a cake recipe, and I learned all about how her mother made "Daddy Cake" for her father every week. His own cake! She made another one for the family and all those known for stopping by their warm and welcoming duplex apartment for conversation, cake, or challa! A great recipe for learning about family is to ask for one or two or ten and sit back and listen. It is delicious oral history!
Here's the recipe for Daddy Cake....please let me know how you liked it. What's your family's favorite?
