    Galley Wench's Note:

    Just found this recipe in my old recipe file. Grandma use to make this simple recipe to serve with tea in the afternoon. Only things on the old yellowed page are the ingredients, no directions, so I'm taking some liberty here. Think of it as an adventure . . . this is how our grandmothers use to cook!

      Dear GW and Grandma, We hope you will be pleased with our creativity in making substitutions to your recipe. The recipe took an exotic turn with the substitution of butter to olive oil and raisins to dried raspberries. Since it was already way off course, we took it further by adding Lebanese Orange Blossom Water to the glaze. The glaze was further enhanced by an additional 1/2 cup of sugar added by accident by my darling daughter. We used an 8 1/2" round pan, but the batter was quite bountiful and overflowed. Despite all the drama, the resulting cake was delicious.
