I have been making this recipe for about 25 years now. I used to have Tupperware parties, & Home Interior parties, & school bake sales quite frequently & made this for them. It was well recieved.
After adding caramel topping to a piece of this cake, I am revising it to include it in the main recipe: it is that good.
