Bread Maker Machine FattyGrub has been on a roll. He does love this toy and I have to admit that the bread is cheap and as good as it gets. Here is his attempt to make a cake. I know it is a little sad in look, as one should be sure to let it sit for a while in the pan before taking it out to cool. However, this is one tasty treat.

I suspect he was inspired to make it after overhearing me and my mother talking on the phone. You see it seems that she was feeling a little sick yesterday from eating 1/2 a pound cake.
