Maple Snack Cake

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    I love anything with maple syrup, sweet and savory! I inherited it from my mom, so I’ll have to remember this when she visits.

    There is no comparison between the real maple syrup and the make believe, you just can’t believe. The frosting looks so good with the pecans!

    Ooooh – that cake looks fantastic! I love maple syrup, especially grade B, which is less refined and darker. The fake stuff is just awful!

    Does any store in Lima sell real maple syrup? I would desperately love to find a source here. This has been one ingredient I’ve desperately missed since moving to Peru from the United States.

    Sorry Barbara, I haven’t seen real maple syrup here yet. It is one of those “please bring me…” items. Hopefully one day…
