Can't you just imagine this lovely cake set out by your tree and stockings hung by the fireplace just waiting for Santa to arrive ?

I have been collecting recipes for at least 60 years plus! This BLUE DIAMOND RECIPE and picture was cut
out of a magazine, maybe 20-30 years ago.It is nice and moist cake and keeps well.
It was called:
