Pork Cake, not political

January 17, 2010

This is an actual recipe from an actual book. A friend of mine from the Oregon Extension Women’s Studies May Term found this recipe in our cabin the year I was a student there. It proved to be an excellent piece of performance poetry.

Enjoy reading it.

If you decide to make it, I hope you enjoy that, too.
