Aunt Betty’s Cake

Aunt Betty’s Cake

I love family favourite recipes handed down and shared – this one was from my cousin’s wife, Isobel Tott. She called it her Aunt Betty’s cake although apparently there is a family dispute going on because Aunty Rita says it’s hers. So, just to add petrol to the flames I call it Isobel’s cake. It’s […]

Vanilla Kipferl
