Momma Gert's Place

Greetings, readers.

Well, we have embarked upon the last Easter in this century. Strange, isn't it? Hopefully, yours will be a happy one!

During our Christmas holiday, I received the recipe for a very delicious cake. I had never heard of it but once I tasted it, I had to share this wonder with the world.

I also felt this would make a wonderful Easter dessert. So, this month at Momma Gert's Place, we bring you: Hummingbird Cake by Ms. Kathy.

Hope you enjoy.
