Matrimonial cake a sweet treat with a strange name. It's defiantly not a wedding cake , some have suggested that its name comes from " a metaphor for marriage because it has a rough top but a sweet filling and a firm base". Pretty clever, I can't take credit for making this batch but I was a willing participant!
It seems to have Western Canadian origins. I just call it delicious.
My sister sent me a scan of my mothers original recipe hand written in two colours.
She gives credit to her mother on the top corner.
It still tastes great even frozen!
