"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

Directions:
Cake

Combine all in one bowl. Use 10x14 pan, or 9x13 ang get a bonus 12 cupcakes. Grease and flour pan. Bake at 350 for 40/45 minutes. Bake cupcakes for approx 25 - 28 mins. While the cake and cups cool ... make the frosting!

Frosting

Heat flour and milk until thick. Stir constantly or it will burn. Set aside and let cool. Combine sugar and butter and beat until mixed well and fluffy. Add cooled flour and milk mixture. Beat until fluffy.

(Note: This frosting is easy to ruin. Follow the instructions, don't rush it, and don't frost the cake with it until you test it and determine it doesn't taste like flour!)

This one comes from Kirsten's (Al's ex-wife) family. Known as "The Famous Carley Cake". It's so damn good. Good luck with the tricky frosting.
