TWD: Cake for the Eva Girls
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie special was the Apple-Coconut Family Cake. I'm sure it was delicious, but I'll never know unless I bake it a second time.
I had a dilemma. My daughter does not like cooked apples or coconut, so I had to decide whether or not to bake this cake. I wouldn't (or shouldn't) eat it all myself. So that meant I would have to share it, or, better yet, give it away.
Donate it to a good cause.
That good cause dropped right in my lap. My dear neighbor's long-time friend was participating in a bake sale on Saturday morning. It was the Eva Girls 5th Annual Bake Sale, with all the proceeds going to the Ribbons of Life Breast Cancer Foundation.
It had to be.
So, bright and early on Saturday morning, we drove over to Eva Street (hence, the name) and dropped off our goodies. My neighbor's son made ginger snaps and donated them for his bit of community service for his school.
I don't know the fate of the cake, or how much money these lovely ladies made, but I do know that at 8:30 in the morning, the crowds were already there and the baked goods were disappearing quickly.
I can say that the batter was delicious and the cake smelled heavenly. For once, I didn't have to bake it longer than the specified time; it just worked out perfectly.
