Marble Pound Cake Again
I posted a photo of my marble pound cake back in March 2005, but it was a bundt pan version.
Then I posted the marble pound cake recipe five days later at my mother's request (did you ever make it, Mom?).
Well, Emily and I made it again last night, this time in a springform tube pan as the recipe suggests. Only I ran out of time and had to go pick up Jason from play practice before it was ready to go in the oven. I sit before you incredulous that this was no problem. I merely gave Emily a few instructions and left her with the job of finishing things up, putting the cake pan in the oven, and starting the timer. She did this with the greatest of ease (other than playing piano for a few minutes before remembering to set the timer!). She was the one who immediately brought up the fact that she should wear hot mitts for safety even though the pan was not hot yet.
I have a child responsible enough, coordinated enough, and interested enough to leave at home to work with a hot oven. And she's my youngest. I guess I've been a parent for a while now. The cake turned out delicious. What a joy to have such an enthusiastic and close friend to bake with.

Oh, yes, indeed, I did make it, at the River House, and I still have the chocolate sauce in the refrigerator from that successful attempt! It does look good enough to eat! Congratulations to Emily for her help and trustworthiness in the kitchen and out! Love you and missing you, as always, Mom...proud to be connected with you and all of my family, near and far...
