    "Food:The Way To Anyone's Heart"'s Note:

    This recipe has been around for many years and is all over the internet, but thought I would add it for those who have never seen it. You must first make the yeast starter which takes 2 weeks and then go on to the fruit starter which takes 30 days. It's a fun thing to do with your children, allowing them to add the fruit each time and then make the cake. The cake is very moist! Enjoy! TIP=One package of dry active yeast= 2 1/4 teaspoons or 1/4 ounce)
