And down the Rabbit-Hole she went: 

It wasn’t anything spectacular, it was quite ordinary really. It was just a bit of Eat Me cake.

“Her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words “Eat Me” were beautifully marked in currants. “Well, I’ll eat it,” said Alice, “and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key; and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door: so either way I’ll get into the garden, and I don’t care which happens!” 

So she set to work, and very soon finished off the cake.”*

She finished it in less then a day! Nothing was left by next day, except some crumbs. The “Eat-Me” cake was actually a very simple piece of thing to complete. Just as it was on Tasty Kitchen and with nothing changed.

 1 cup sugar 
2 eggs 
1/2 cups buttermilk

It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets. Feel free to cut and paste my recipes for your own use. Publication is permitted as long as it is in your own words and with your own photographs. However, I would ask you for an acknowledgement and link-back to my blog. Happy cooking!
