Today, my dad would have been 90 years old. I truly thought he would be here, celebrating along with us. Sadly, that is not the case.
As I have mentioned in many of my past posts, my dad loved his sweets. He would drive pretty much anywhere to get his favorite pecan bun, loaf of bread, tuna sandwich, or burger. Martino’s Bakery in Burbank, was no exception. Their tea cakes were a staple at most holiday or family gatherings. These tea cakes are simply a square cupcake. The cake is a moist, buttery, mapley cake with the most perfect maple glaze. I have already eaten one. I may just have to eat one more, in honor of my dad.
