"This is my grandmother’s version of a Southern Lane cake. Grandmother raised her own chickens which account for the large number of eggs. The colors make it a holiday favorite but the hubby loves it so we eat it year round. There is often bourbon in the bottom of the fruit bowl and I usually brush the cake layers with it. Of course it can be made without the bourbon, just add flavoring to the cooked, custard along with the fruit." - Cheyle Hanna
This Haitian soup-meets-stew is usually enjoyed January 1st for Haitian Independence Day. It's a celebration soup that boasts lot of robust flavour and heartiness. This version is inspired by the classic recipe but skips the traditional addition of noodles.
This recipe was on the inside wrapper on the chocolate. As it happens the company and changed hands and the recipe has also changed. I favor the original. It makes a beautiful cake! Enjoy! - Cheryle
