Madeira cake reminds me of my childhood and I particularly remember one occasion. It was a sunny, cold winter day. Mom was on out walking on the ice and me and my sister were at home with dad. Dad wanted to surprise mom with a cake, so he baked a madeira cake. I also remember that when the cake was ready, my Dad put it on the windowsill to cool. Good memories :) I do not often bake this cake, but lately I have been fond of this kind of cakes. And I think you appreciate them more as an adult. I do not mean that I have become old :) Do you like madeira cake?
