Sometime around the pre-election season I had to quit NPR and started listening to podcasts instead. As I got further in German I started listening to news in German. But I usually play a fun podcast during my commute home to make it more bearable.

Today I listened to one all about cake and its relevance in American history. By the time I got home I knew I was making a cake tonight, German review be damned. With my test in just under 2 weeks that is a strong craving indeed.  I mentioned all this to my fabulous au pair, who then whipped up a cake in the 30 minutes between dinner and when she left to bring Zoltan to soccer (I participated too ... I took it out of the oven)

It is delicious.

It must be cake season; for some reason it is appearing everywhere. I have Malva Pudding (cake) on the brain these days. Hubs and I have fallen in love with it here in Namibia. It's a Dutch/Cape Town/South Africa thing and it is sooooooo yummy. I recently bought the apricot jam and have the recipe waiting to be tried in my own kitchen. So far I've been strong and resisted the need to make and taste. Waiting for hubs return from a business trip - that way I know I won't devour the whole thing myself. I hope your cake was absolutely perfect in every bite!!!
