    I already love the sound of this recipe! Butter cake? Yes please! :) I hope you and your family had a lovely holiday Fae. I wish 2014 brings you prosperity, good health and good food! Sorry for not coming around lately. Blogging has taken a lot of time, not to mention being away for a total of three week the last two months. Happy New Year my friend. Cheers!

    Happy Holidays Fae! Your cake looks moist, tasty and so inviting. I also love the inclusion in your photo of tea in the background. What kind is it? I love when tea is served in glass cups. Exotically lovely. Best wishes to you and your family in the new year. I look forward to reading all the new things you will share.

      Dear Martine, Happy Holidays to you and yours, and Happy New Year 2014, with health, happiness and love! Thank you for the lovely comment. I’m sure you do know that we Iranians love our tea in glass with thin rims. I have a drawer in my kitchen with rows of varieties of teas, black, aromatic, even green teas. The one in the photo is blend of Sadaf (brand) teas. I am also looking forward to your exotic recipes in the new year. 😀

    Love the idea of adding fruit, I imagine it’d be like extra little bursts of moist flavour whilst eating it. Buttercake has always been one of my simple favourites but for some reason I rarely make it! I might have to change that. Thanks Fae xx
