“She heard him mutter, ‘Can you take away this grief?’ ‘I’m sorry,’ she replied. ‘Everyone asks me. And I would not do so even if I knew how. It belongs to you. Only time and tears take away grief; that is what they are for.” —

TWD: Vanilla Pound Cake

Thought I should get back on the TWD schedule. Weekend schedules have been crazy and I have not been able to join in for a while. Today was a public holiday and I had just flown back from Siem Reap, and since I had a free afternoon, I decided to make this fairly simple recipe.

The vanilla pound cake was good - tender and easy to make - a good way to ease back into TWD.

Do have a look at the other attempts at this cake here.
