…holes poked generously into each cooled loaf
eight cakes ‘dampened with whiskey’ wait on the kitchen table
to be carefully wrapped (but not before a sample is shared!), first in waxed paper, then foil; then to be stored for months and months to allow the flavors to mellow, ripen.

Thank you, Cousin John!
and Bridget, Joe and Ellen, and now Zach for allowing me to share in the memories and the love!
‘Eggbeaters whirl, spoons spin round bowls of butter and sugar, vanilla sweetens the air, ginger spices it;’
‘…and oh so much flour, butter, so many eggs, spices, flavorings…’
batter is mixed with fruit
pecans and walnuts are added
ready to be ladled into waiting pans……..
Day 3….to be continued
