OF: The Bad Luck Cat Mysteries
BY: Kay Finch
Being a mystery writer, when I see the phrase just desserts I think about the old expression meaning something that is deserved or merited - the villain is punished and justice is served. Most people, however, who hear the word desserts think of cake, cookies, candy, pie, ice cream. . .I don't blame them.
Yes, I have a sweet tooth. I'm also into baking. Sometimes, I don't sleep well, so I get up and bake. I bake for hours at a time, but the baked goods never go to waste - especially at this time of year with all of the special occasions - the birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, picnics, festivals, and bake sales. When I ask "what may I bring?" I'm often told "just bring desserts."
Here's the recipe for one of my favorite, quick-to-make cakes. Try it, you'll love it.
