    Recipe Introduction

    I haven't made this yet, but it sounds DIVINE - what a lovely combination of ingredients on an old favorite! (One of those "why didn't I think of that before?" things!) Click on the link to see pics from the poster - I've never seen anything prettier! The cake itself looks like it has an amazing crumb and texture, almost like a pastry. (Note: I'd like to try making this in a cast iron skillet - put the skillet with the butter in it into the oven while it heats and you make the batter, then proceed with the rest of the steps.)
