"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
This cake has seen many birthdays in our family. It truly is a no-fail cake - always moist and so easy to prepare. I use a 1/2 cup icing sugar thinned out just with water to make a drizzle over the cooled cake! Yummy! Thanks Baba - I always think of you when I make this and that is often :)
