From The Magnolia Bakery Cook Book

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt

2 cups sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 8 oz ca of pineapple, drained (appr 1 cup crushed pineapple)
1/2 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 325ºF.
Grease and flour two 9" pans. Line bottoms with waxed paper.

In a medium bowl, sift together the dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, soda, salt) and set aside.

In a large bowl, on medium mixer speed, beat the oil and sugar until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until light, each about 1-2 minutes. Add vanilla, bananas, and pineapple ad mix to combine. Add dry ingredients 1/3 at a time and mix until combined. Stir in pecans.

Pour into pans and bake 40-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes and remove from pans to cool on wire racks completely.

Frost with Cream Cheese Icing and garnish with coarsely chopped pecans or halves.

So: onion, carrot, celery, potato, mushroom, red beans, garbanzo beans, garlic, salt, tomato and water. Should be good, no?

Thing the first:

I have gotten so many responses to posting my resume that i am completely overwhelmed. I had a phone interview today, which will result in an in-person interviwe later this week at Datatel. They seem a decent environment, and are an easy commute, as they're in the Fair Lakes part of Fairfax. I have an in-person interview with a recruiter in Bethesda tomorrow. Whee.


Thing the second:

I need a good vegan cake recipe. I have a frosting already. Suggestions?
