“Why don’t you try using…

bay leaves in a cake!”  These were the kind words of advice and encouragement from a dear friend of mine.  She pulled out a plastic bag from the drawer in her kitchen and pulled out some bay leaves.  “Try it!” she said with enthusiasm.  So I did!

The bay leaves were from St. Lucia (very authentic I know!)  I wasn’t sure how to incorporate them into the cake so I lined the bottom of the tin with them and hoped for the best.

The cake is still cooling in the kitchen so I will post photos tomorrow.

On reflection, I think that I will need to blend/crush the bay leaves next time so they are part of the cake.  I need to purchase a Vitamix blender pronto!

Once I have perfected the recipe I may share it.
