The fifth Sunday of Lent had the Gospel where Jesus says, "unless the grain of wheat dies, it can not bear fruit." I was still thinking about this, but then we got the call to go to the hospital and I left the dessert in Klenda's capable hands.
She made a marbled pound cake using wheat flour!
Plus she made a wheat design on top...
And then, for Palm Sunday, she made a Tiramisu cake, decorated with a palm.
Since Tiramisu means "pick me up" that works for the donkey carrying Jesus, too!
Plus it has to be the most delicious cake I've ever had. If I had realized it was going to be that good, I'd have had her save it for Easter!
I'll try to type up the recipe later, but it was actually a (box) yellow cake made with coffee, infused with a coffee vanilla syrup and layered with cream cheese frosting.
