      Wonderful cake. I could not find the recipe I used in the past, but I don't remember that one being as good as this one. I used white whole wheat flour and added an extra egg because the ones I had seemed a bit small. It made a great smell in the house and came out with a nice edge on top and moist on the inside. We have all had two pieces already! It's great with a glass of milk.
