Rebecca's journey into the food world was a little different than that of her coworkers. She didn't grow up in her grandmother's kitchen and there was no secret spaghetti sauce recipe. Her mother, who owned a home daycare center, needed to prepare large quantities of kid-friendly food as quickly as possible.

Great and easy. Delicious. I followed the recipe exactly but added 1/2 ts baking powder to the flour mixture. I don't know the difference if I didn't added it though. Thanks for sharing. I will definitely make it again
This is an excellent recipe. I made it for a family brunch and even those that didn't care for dates loved it. I followed the recipe exactly. It reminds me of my childhood in Minnesota. It's in my new cookie rotation.

Caramel and cake. The subtle sweetness of the pound cake combined with the browned butter and toasty sugar flavor in the caramel sauce icing creates a dessert well worth the time to make it.
