1-2-3-4 Cake

My mom taught both my brother and me how to make this cake, and it remains one of our favorites. My mom always told me that it's called a "1-2-3-4 Cake" because the name helps you remember the amounts of the ingredients. The consistency is that of a pound cake, and I use this recipe every year when I make my lamb cake for Easter.
