Martha Washington’s “Great” Cake
This cake is crazy dense. I think I heard that something like a dozen eggs were sacrificed to create this monster. It has a nutmeg flavor with a citrus aftertaste and leaves a buttery feeling on your tongue and lips. There are michigan transparent apples and dried cherries in it. I saw some almonds go in too but they seemed to have disappeared into this crazy dense cake. The density of this cake makes it feel borderline too dry, but overall it is really nice.
