“Have it at tea
Or with a dollop of cream,
Grey will turn to blue
And winter to spring serene.
Happiness will return
With a mouthful of cake,
There is no place like home
For this magical bake.
So roll up your sleeves
And get covered in flour,
Soft, moist, gently sweet
It’ll be gone in an hour!”
Enjoy warm with a cup of cardamom chai.
