Allow me to introduce you to my mom’s dominican cake. I’ve been eating this since FOREVER!!! I do love this cake, it’s perfectly moist, and crumbly, it lends itself to being soaked, covered with some marmalade or eaten alone. We have this cake for any occasion my mom made cake for, all my cousins, neighbors, co-workers have enjoyed a slice or two. We had this cake so much, that we actually asked ma’ not to make it for a while. Yes we did! we asked for no more cakes.
After a few dry months, I now miss it. I was so thrilled the other day when I stopped by and the smell of cake baking filled the house. YUM!! I confirmed which cake we could eat (she was making it for the neighbor, she’d kill us if we cut into the wrong cake) grabbed a plate, cute a slice and ate it. Plain delicious goodness.
1lb all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
