Hello sweet friends!
Most of you know that Ecuador, my country too, has suffered one of the worst earthquakes since 1949... and I so want to thank all the wonderful, sweet, kind and generous friends that prayed for Ecuador at my request and on your own as well, even before I even knew you had heard of the tragedy in the news and for thinking of me and my family.
I will be forever grateful!
Today's post has a title which is just that! "I'm so sad, I baked a cake."
While looking at the new posts you my friends sent out today, one caught my eye and it's from; "Living the Gourmet Blog and the cake is, New York Style Crumb Cake."
I have a little secret to tell you... most cakes I make, I give hubby a piece and the rest I give it away to family and friends. I hardly ever eat one piece, or just maybe a tiny one when it's a new recipe and this one is a new recipe to me, so I had a 'huge piece' for a change, you can tell by the cut. I feel better now!
Let me tell you, it is delicious, so yes, go ahead and try it with a good cuppa of steaming hot tea in pretty dishes too !
|It looks and tastes superb ! There's a little glass container with pure honey, which I swirled a little on top of the New York Style Crumb Cake from Living the Gourmet Blog... for a little more sweetness, lol..|
|We had some tea in this beautiful set of dishes. |
I don't know the brand as they have the name of the store specially made for them, where I bought them several years ago.
|Ain't it petty looking? Boy it tasted great too!|
Someone said that cake is the ultimate 'comfort food' and I totally agree.
|I was so happy to have a big piece of this luscious cake; it sure raised my spirits up, as I knew it would !|
Thank you so much for your sweet and kind comments dearest friends, you always make my day.
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
