For all the nutritional stuffs, CLICK HERE. This recipe doesn’t come from any of the heroines today. Nope. It comes from a woman who’s birthed more babies than most, who’s even older than the dirt I come from, and who takes no guff from anyone. She’s also one of my favorite characters. Granny Mae is the wise woman of Blaidd’s Gap, West Virginia, where the Wolves of the 69th seek refuge. She knows the value of a tried and true dessert to enjoy on a chilly winter’s eve and serves up this warm winter lemon cake with a taste of summer to keep a body cozy. Add a cup of coffee and it’s definitely yummers. You can read all about Granny Mae and a final chapter of the Wolves and their families in MOON SHOT. I’d suggest reading all the Moonstruck books first so you know who the players are and why they end up where they end up. But if you just can’t wait to meet Granny Mae, just click on the cover or the title. Free to read with Kindle Unlimited or buy it for your keeper shelf for $2.99 from Amazon.
