Is it January yet?
That has been the burning question this week. I can't wait for Christmas to end. Please, I swear, I'm not a grinch.
There is still so much to do, so many presents to buy and people to see. What is supposed to be a happy time, can quickly turn into a stressful experience.
The lack of posts prove how busy I've been.
My Dad and Stepmom came here for the holidays, before moving to Spain. My Bestfriend arrives on Thursday (the one I'm moving to Florida with). You can see now how things can get busy very quickly.
I baked this cake because I was craving something sweet and wintery. Plus, needed something to get my mind off things.
Even though there is no real winter in Puerto Rico, temperatures do drop to the low 70's in December. Which is a great excuse to bake and experiment with soups.
Do you know what makes this cake Jewish? I have no idea. If you know, please tell me.
This is one of those cakes that get better every time you make it. It has a rich texture that comes from the cream cheese. The spicy, warm flavor comes from the cinnamon and vanilla bean.
