There are many things I miss eating since I moved to Cairo. American breakfast foods for starters. Pancakes, waffles, toast, etc. What I wouldn't give now for a Denny's grand slam or an IHOP short stack. Or how about a steaming hot Belgian waffle with butter melted into every nook and cranny drowning in hot maple syrup.
I have always liked maple syrup. As a child growing up in upstate New York, I learned how to tap a maple tree and make my own maple syrup with the help of the local 4H center. I proudly brought home my little jar of homemade syrup. Aunt Jemima would have been proud. Visiting my best friend in Danbury, CT always meant a trip to a country store down the road from her house for some maple candy.
As far as chocolate cake goes - I can take it or leave it. I would not call myself a chocoholic (that would be my husband), but I like a slice of chocolate cake every now and then. But what is the deal with this cake on the menu at Beanos?
This just does not sound good to me. Has anyone actually tried this? Let me know.
