My Aunt Dixie and (Montana-made) Kentucky jam cake
"It is most logical," I said out loud to myself while snipping the recipe for Kentucky jam cake from the Havre Daily News. You have to understand that I never clip recipes from newspapers or magazines. I have a few treasured cookbooks; some of which I seldom open, some with pages so spattered with batter or stained with vanilla that one can hardly read the directions. No matter, I hardly ever follow the directions anyway. I regard a recipe as a guide. The genius of the dish is up to me.
The logic that moved me to cut out this particular recipe began with my Aunt Dixie.
