"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:
Aunt Mollie would make this cake often for Uncle Royce and Rodney. I remember getting to eat it when I'd visit them with Grandma and Grandpa Miller. It's very moist and goes well with a glass of cold milk
