This is called a Queen Emma Cake.
In spite of it's height & girth and the never-ending list of tropical delights of which it is made, it is a light and fluffy and oh so delicious, only on Maui, treat.
I even broke my "no thanks, I don't eat desserts" rule, just to taste it.... and ended up eating a pretty hearty slice. Soooooo ONO!!
We got this to share with some friends (not nearly enough friends... the 1/2 cake you see in first picture is what's left!) to celebrate Michael's birthday.
Just another little temptation of what can await you when you come to Maui.
