  2. Having just come back from a weekend in Stanford, and previously visited & had breakfast at Yum Eat Café a few weeks prior to this weekend.
    I certainly am going to have to attempt this cake. Normally try & stay away from sweet temptations however don’t think I can resist this. Thank you for sharing. Fiona
