  11. The cake sounds lovely. I love sour cream cakes. I'd probably switch up the grape for raspberry or something a little less sweet.

  14. Looks yummy! I spoke to the nurse and am NOT a diabetic, so maybe I should try this... or maybe not because I'm flirting with the disease. Hmm. Tough one.

  23. This looks like a real "yummer" – but for once you didn't catch me unprepared! Now, I always prepare some cookies to gobble down before looking at your recipes, because they always leave me famished and gagging for a good portion of your meals! In spite of my cookies, I would love to have a nice slice of this one, though! Best to you and the family, xoxoxo D.

  25. I saw a blogger rant that we shouldn't be using the words moist or yummy because it's somehow tacky. You know what? This cake is moist and yummy and I don't care who complains. :)
