groaning cake

Here we are making groaning cake during labour. We followed the recipe from the book, The Birth House, by Amy McKay. She writes that this wive's tale says the scent of the groaning cake being baked in the birth house helps ease the mother's pain, and if a mother breaks the eggs while she's aching, her labour won't last as long. I don't know if it helped but it was fun to do, thanks Renie for helping me, I guess all I really did was crack the eggs!
