    Diana #2's Note:

    Taken from "The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook", written by Lucy Maud Montgomery's granddaughter Kate Macdonald. I am posting this as it appears in the original book, which was written as a tribute to her father Stuart Macdonald (Montgomery's son). The recipes were written with precise instructions, geared for young cooks. All recipes were apparently tested by a 12 year old cook, with perfect results. Quote from the book: "Here's the cake Anne really meant to make. Be sure you use vanilla - not anodyne liniment!" Other recipes are available in a cookbook prepared by chef #756627 - book #243014 *NOTE*: Posting to add to the cookbook. I have not personally made this recipe. April 2011 - The servings has been changed from 8 to 16, as suggested by Caybaybay. :)

      I started making this cake when I was young, it's very simple to make. It has always been a big hit, my friends always ask me to make it for them. Note that is turns out quite dense, so really it should be divided into 16 servings not 8.
