I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

For a cake, this is on the lower calorie & fat chart.   It is light, fluffy and delicious.  I do believe this is around 175 calories per slice.
