This an easy cake to make and if you like you can bake it in a bundt cake pan- I like making it in springform cheesecake pan myself- I think it stays moister that way. Another way I like it is to bake it in my 9x13-inch cake pan. This cake is so delicious- you can't go wrong no matter what pan you make it in!
This recipe was given to me by my friend in Albuquerque,NM some 50 yrs ago.
