Summer cake

When we do not have a summer in the city and because we have already been on vacation (or we are just waiting for departure), then this lovely cake should be made.

This year when I came back to Portugal, I knew exactly where and what I want to eat. Also, I could share with my fellow travellers the tried-and-true impression of something  and whether it is really as claimed on Trip Advisor. And believe me, I enjoyed a return visit to Portugal. As a travel guide, I guided my friends and talked about everything I knew. But given that my company...
