Bounty Cake

When I think of a cake, I think of Bounty. A must on every birthday in my family for years, and still everybody’s favorite. It entered our lives during the 1990-es, when my mother got the recipe from our neighbor. The ’90-es were the years of economic sanctions and very shitty times for all the Balkans, so people got very inventive in making copycat recipes of the famous sweets. It was either too expensive or impossible to find, but hey, no problem, we’ll make it ourselves :wink: Funny thing is that this recipe came from a person who wasn’t a good cook at all and mom had to tweak it a lot to suit our taste. Anyway, of all the copycat recipes that were invented at those times, I find this one the most successful one as the taste is soo very close to the original. read more
