MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our family and friends who are celebrating Christmas Eve on January 6th, per Julian calendar.
Ukrainian Christmas Eve is not only very rich in traditional foods prepared freshly that day, and shared by the family during the Christmas Eve 12 course meatless dinner,
While most children are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the big, jolly fellow in a red suit, who sneaks into their houses through the chimney with presents for everyone, or at least this is how the legend has it, Ukrainian children get their small gifts on December 6th, from Saint Nicholas.
The Pineapple Swirl Cake recipe has been on my list of favorite cakes to try for quite sometime, and now I am very honored to finally share it with you.
It was an award-winning “Recipe of the Week”, submitted several years ago by aunt Elisabeth, to Suburban News in Westfield, New Jersey.
If you love pineapple, and looking for a simple and delicious cake, this recipe is a winner.
Today I revised this recipe slightly, by adding 1/3 cup of Canola oil, which improved the texture of this cake, making it lighter.
