Nancy J.'s notes for this recipe:
This delicious cake recipe has been around a very long time.
It was the rage in the 40's! during WORLD WAR 2 era.
Why is it called a "CHOP SUEY" cake ??
I can not find an answer, but I believe
it is because it looks a little like...CHOP SUEY!
You may have to use your immagation a little.
O.K.,so stretch it a bit! LOL
I remember the great taste,
can you ???
NOTE: When you serve this cake,
PlEASE SAY a PRAYER, and
THANK ALL OF OUR GREAT VETERANS!
WITH OUT THEM ..WE MAY NOT BE HERE TODAY..TO ENJOY THIS CAKE

This cake was a real treat...
when we had it...
and not to often...
as butter and sugar was rationed
during the war years!
Actually back in the 40's we never
had it with frosting!!!!

It was still delicious!!!

I see there are msany versions of the preachers cake...
some with boiling water, some with straw berries....it goes on and on..
some with cocoa,!!!!
But CHOP SUEY CAKE ..remains the same...
Pretty close though.
I have never tasted the Preacher cake.
Hugs, nancy
