"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was found in Lillian Godwin Brown's collection of her mother Nollie's papers while Lillian's daughter Judy Brown Hutcherson and I were going through them, looking for ancestral pictures and letters. Since I'm not a cook, I will leave it to you to figure out the directions for this cake.
