"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was the cake the Kay DeBora used to bake for Grandpa Elwood when they were neighbors on Camellia Street. Grandpa used to hide it in the back of the refrigerator so the rest of us wouldn't devour the whole thing.

We found the recipe when we were moving Grandma out of Elm Terrace. Janet made it for Linda for a birthday surprise, and now it's back on our Most Favored Recipe list.
