My most requested recipe. It also got me the sweetest compliment I ever had on my baking. - When the five year old french niece of my best friend came visiting with her parents she was very shy. When she had tasted a little of the cake she insisted that everone present, please try the cake immediately, because "c'est le meilleur gateau du monde" - it is the best cake in the world! And that is what my friends call it now when requesting it. :) - We like it topped with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream.
