    Mille®'s Note:

    In the late 1970s, I discovered Clyde's restaurant in Columbia, Maryland. The entire menu was fabulous, especially the Beer Battered Shrimp and their Victoria Spice Cake. Both recipes were creations of the chef, who passed away a few years later and took her recipes to her grave. The restaurant later became part of a chain and only the splendid decor remains today. The food is still good, but that's all – just "good". For months, I have been trying to replicate something approaching the taste of that wonderful shrimp dish. I am very pleased with the following recipe.
