Day 5 and I have a cake which is a spice cake. The recipe is from my brothers wife, who loves to bake vegan cakes and preferably whole wheat ones. The minute her cake was done and she had a bite she immediately called me to tell that it was a hit.Naturally I asked for the recipe. I did not take long to bake, infact I baked it the very next day, but before baking I was a little hesitant as the cake had black pepper  so I reconfirmed. I did add and trust me the cake was awesome. Everyone loved it and the raisins , walnuts ,they gave it a super flavor. The lemon rind was the highlight of the cake. I simply love this citrusy flavor. Since I was not sure if all would like I made some lemon sauce to serve along. Wow , i just cannot describe the flavor it enhanced, though my hubby liked it as it is. He felt there was actually no need for the sauce, but I guess that is because he is not very fond of citrusy sauces. Anyway I leave it to you , sauce or no sauce! The recipe for the sauce shall follow soon.
