The Most Amazing Cake EVER!

Amazing Cake

Recently, my friend Mary decided to host a small dinner at her house.  I used to frequent these dinners when I lived in Chicago.  Now I must live vicariously through the stories and photos via email.  This time she decided to torment me by sending a picture of the dessert they devoured at the end of the meal.  The picture was so amazing I had to share it.  She said the recipe was from a popular post on Smitten Kitchen.

Just look at it.  Isn’t it just the most delicious work of art you have ever seen????  Of course, words can not describe how wonderful it tastes.  Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to try the cake out for yourself and let me know what you think.

Mary owns a wonderful shop in the Chicagoland area called Gourmet in a Day. If you live near Chicago,  you should check her shop out.  The food is amazing and simple to prepare at home.
