|1940 advertisement; big version here|
And after I will dish out Crisp Seasonal Apples Baked with Our Secret Blend of Spices (cinnamon dumped on top) and lavished with a topping of oats and caramelized demerara sugar. That's apple crisp to you.
So it is with Morocco Cake, I believe. It is - are you ready? - plain chocolate cake with raisins. It is iced with whipped cream flavored with cocoa and chopped raisins and nuts. It sounds quite nice. But it is not the "richly exciting" dessert Miss Perky at the top of the ad calls it. But still. Not a huge pain to make, either, like her neighbor thinks:
"Look," I said to the woman next door,
"Party refreshments need not be a chore!"
No, dear, but listening to the neighbors handing out advice certainly can be.
[P.S. I'm going to post the recipe up on FoodBuzz: here's the link.]
