This week, ovens everywhere are cranking out cookies and more cookies for the holidays. Mine is about to be one of them. I adore holiday cookies, nearly all of them. As wonderful as they are though, a plate of cookies just doesn’t quite meet the mark for dessert after a nice holiday meal. You want something a little more central and a little more showy.
This cake is the answer. No layers, fillings, or careful frosting needed here. It’s very simple to prepare and can be made in advance so you can spend your time on other last minute preparations. I’ve had this recipe saved to try for years and now I’m just sorry I didn’t try it sooner. Better late than never, I suppose! The simplicity of this recipe also makes it a great kitchen project with kids, and it really is a beautiful centerpiece for a holiday meal.
