I have bookmarked this recipe long ago, but I was delaying in baking. Delaying has become the best, since I have baked this cake today and it’s our 11th Anniversary Day, so called the STEEL ANNIVERSARY DAY. This cake added happiness from its part, as it came out well – moist, soft, yummy. The cake was about to be over in minutes, but I store a portion of cake for my Bestie. Let us move on to the recipe…
