Minnie P Meno Cake

Some wise, older ladies of Minnie’s acquaintance shared a recipe for 2 cakes with her.  “It helped with my hot flushes,” one said.  The other, “It made me feel I was doing something for myself”.  However you introduce this cake to yourself, it is intended to be eaten with appreciation for one’s self in the company of like-minded individuals. A slice a day should spread some Meno magic…
