I made this cake last Saturday when a friend of mine called me to tell me that she was coming to visit and stay with us for a few days.  Of course this was discussed the previous week but she wasn” t sure when she would be coming.  On Saturday I got a last minute […]

This is one of those recipes we used to make in Cyprus, which is probably again another recipe we learned making from the British who were (and still hold Cypriot territory by having two Sovereign base areas) on the island for so many years.
