I just opened the 1996 Southern Living’s Annual Recipes that I brought in a few weeks ago from home, and wanted to see what they had special for Father’s Day. And I turned the page to June, and a couple pages in I saw “Lane Cake.” Oh, my gosh! I had a neighbor in the late ’50s and’ 60s who shared this recipe with me, and I loved it. Somehow, I just can’t find that recipe. And here it is! This has it as a three-layer cake, but as I recall, we used a strong thread and cut the layers in half so we had a six-layer cake. We usually made it at Christmas time and kept it in the fridge for a few days prior to serving, but this cake is in the June section of the book. So, make it for Papa’s Father’s Day! He’ll love you for it.

Robert is Here is a rowdy roadside market in Homestead that was started by six-year old Robert Moehling in 1959 as he sold his father’s cucumbers on the honor system with a can where the customers could put their money while Robert was in school. But on day one, as little Robert was at the stand, no one stopped. His dad thought no one saw Robert, so he made signs he tacked up on both sides of the stand proclaiming, “Robert is Here.” It worked. Thus, their thriving family business was born and continues today with a greatly enhanced inventory of fruits and vegetables. By age 14, industrious Robert had bought his first ten-acre piece of property and planted an avocado grove. The key lime recipe, inspired by Robert’s recipe, is “an old-fashioned standard in our family,” says Robert’s wife, Tracey.

From the 1996 Southern Living’s Annual Recipes, here is a unique pie flavor: Coffee! Jodie McCoy from Tulsa, Oklahoma, contributed this sweet concoction for all you coffee lovers.
