A Phoenix Burning


So, in case you missed it, Shrew left me a great recipe in the comments a couple of posts ago.  I MUST repeat it here where everyone will see it because it was SO easy and yummo!!!

Here’s what it looked like fresh out of the oven:

And look at that sauce that’s underneath!!!

And here it is in my bowl:

WAY too good!  Thanks Shrewbie!!

Here’s the recipe from Shrew’s comment:

“I took this from “Cajunrecipies.com” but Betty says it was a WWII ration based cake…where ever it came from it is so yummy I dream about it.”
