In our family, we usually break the fast (Tisha B'Av) with a nice cake. However, this year no one had time to make anything because of work and everything else stressful that is happening. By the last few hours of the fast I was feeling way too awful to even think about baking. But as I was lying on the couch with a pounding headache, the doorbell rang. It was a family friend dropping off warm, freshly baked cakes for us to break the fast on. They had been baking anyway and made a few extra for us which which was a lovely thing to do! Thank you to them! (And it was yum, an excellent food to break a fast on.)
That's so nice! But the important question - what flavor of cake?
chocolate of course!!
That's sweet. Funny - I baked 2 chocolate cakes on Tisha B'Av (though I wasn't kind enough to send them anyone's way) and froze one of them to use later for Ann's birthday party!
