I simply could not resist the temptation and made the cake. The next morning I surprised my brother with the cake including the birthday wishes from my uncle. I did not had high expectation that this cake would be in particular special because it was “only” a postcard recipe and the cake seemed too simple and did not include any special finesse. Oh no, I was so wrong, this cake is incredible moisture and was not too sweet for a breakfast.
As you can see this in the photo the cake was a success. Before I could find my camera, half of the cake was eaten by my younger and elder brother, so bear with me that only half of the cake is pictured. I will never forget this moment and this cake will always be my “brother breakfast birthday postcard cake”. But of course you are not obliged to make this cake only for a birthday breakfast. Every day is a reason to make this cake. The ingredients could not be more basic, the cake is prepared in no time and could not be more simple.
