It’s sturdy. It’s dense. It’s awful good for you.
The recipe has been in my family for generations, but growing up, I couldn’t bare to eat it. I love it now though, I eat it whenever I can. It’s best just out of the oven, when it’s cooled down enough to eat, but warm enough to melt butter. Cut it open, and eat the firm but chewy slices…
Still though, on the outside it’s as tough as a brick. God help anyone who tries to burgle this house on baking day.
