"Just like grandma used to make"


CROATIA - There's a festival in Croatia that takes the phrase, "just like grandma used to make" to heart.

As part of the Seventh Annual Grandma's Cake Festival organizers held a baking contest.. for grandmas only, of course.

There was a surprisingly big turnout and all the grandmas made different baked creations.

Some Croatian grandmas used recipes that can be traced back to the tenth century, like the rabska cake.

The ingredients for the rabska cake are modest..almonds, lemon juice, lemon zest, liqueur and the usual sugar, flour and eggs.

There's also walnut cake and a lemon poppy seed cake, a chocolate cake and even cheese-filled cakes, as well.
