Before I post the recipe, please let me take this opportunity to put a plug in for my best friend, The Pioneer Woman. She has just released a new book Black Heels to Tractor Wheels which chronicles the story of how she fell in love with her Marlboro Man and goes through their first year of marriage. I picked up this beautiful book yesterday and I've just finished part 1. LOVE. Might I encourage you to do the same at your local book store?
Since it is, after all, her recipe, I copied the link to her post of this special cake on her blog. (Originally posted June 2, 2007)
If you aren't familiar with my best friend, take a minute and look around her site. Look through all sections. Get to know her. Read about her always educational life as a cattle rancher's wife/ blogger extraordinaire/ mother to 4. Just remember, she's MY best friend- she just doesn't know it yet.
Love to you all,
