Best Holiday Cake Ever!
Happy Holiday! Time to roast them chestnuts, plum that pudding, and wassail that bowl. Yes, it's the hap, happiest time of the year. Just ask Andy Williams. So button up your overcoat, you better not cry, take good care of yourself and let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Now, get into that kitchen and rattle them pots and pans. Make with the baking and the cooking. Remember, this is more than just the winter holiday season. It's the winter eating season. It doesn't matter if you're celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah; it's all about food after all, isn't it? And while you're cooking up a storm, give this very special holiday recipe a try this year. It's a real humdinger! Did I really say humdinger? I meant to say lollapalooza.
