Best Two-Egg Cake

Julia Reed


This is my grandma on my mom's side recipe. I never knew my grandma but from mom's recipe case (we use a 3x5 card case) I was digging through it and found hand writing I didn't recognize so it must be hers. I think my mom made this when I was a kid but I'm not sure. I just remember mom making this really awesome cake that she always made from scratch. You could probably use a pre-mixed box of cake but I have yet to try that
