Pomegranate seeds cake (Cake con granadas)

 



I thought about publishing this post on Mother's Day which was yesterday but it was impossible .

Sometimes it happens, we want to do more things than we have time.

And I notice that I get more tired. 

First, here in the house you always have to do and perhaps this pandemic exhausts us all.

We have been around for more than a year. In any case I try to keep the spirit.

Going to ourrecipe, you already know that  always take advantage of the fruits of the season and also others, this time it is the pomegranates, I  find them all so beautiful, the color, the flavor and how well they are in the recipes.

I had some pomegranates and also a neighbor gave me one the other day and finally Gerardo (hubby) says:

 Guess what I brought you and they were lovely pomegranates, someones were small but precious.

 Sometimes I  freeze someones to have at Christmas because there are many Christmas desserts with pomegranates.

I have to say that this cake lasted only one day, I don't know why everyone loved it.

  10. Gloria, We have never baked with pomegranates although we do sometimes see them on the grocery shelves. They don't seem as popular here in the USA but perhaps they should be! Your cake looks lovely... Here in East Tennessee, businesses are opening up and people are getting out and about. Our county is the most vaccinated county in the State of Tennessee. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
