i’ll never forget that wonderful yellow cake with the warm apple topping
my mom would sometimes serve us after dinner
years later when i was a mom
i thought of it again
asking her for the very fancy recipe
she was surprised
oh that? it wasn’t fancy at all
i bought a pre-made pound cake, cut it into slices,
heated up a can of apple pie filling, and poured it on top.
then i was the one who was surprised.
