This garden cake is just perfect for tea time. It is different, wholesome, and adds just the correct amount of sweetness.

The surprising flavor will have you picking through your garden to see what else you can dig up.

As a mother of 6 and wife to a husband I adore, I can honestly say this cake is family approved.

Slice yourself a piece!
