Last year my son’s school organized a big charity event with all kinds of activities. The one I was really excited about was the cake contest. For quite a while already I had been wishing I could enter a contest with my grandma’s orange bundt cake recipe. It was a cake she used to make for special occasions – not that there was anything too complicated about making it, but people just always asked her to bring that delicious cake to their parties.
This is a cake my grandmother had been making for decades, and when she gave me the recipe she told me I should “give it my own touch”. She was always eager to learn and try new things, and she appreciated all kinds of modern twists in cooking and baking.
I think I got it from her that I always like to experiment with recipes and see if I can make them even more delicious. But this recipe I really didn’t want to change. I’ve made some minor tweaks but this is still very much the same cake grandma always made.
And I did get a little teary-eyed when they handed me the blue ribbon at the cake contest. Thanks, grandma!
