Ellie's Methodist Cake
By Tedi Toca Castironfreak
My Grandma made this when Mom was a child & both served it to their families. Also called "Depression Cake" because even then, you had "just a cup" of something. Often, Gram would trade a cup of sugar for a neighbor's flour or a different fruit was swapped. Canned was less costly and tastes better in this. There are dozens of variations and our favorites include: pineapple, 1/2 cup nuts, pears, prunes, dates, apples, raisins, and the brown sugar "sauce" I've added. My dad loved this; always had to have a "warm dessert" with milk. Some Enjoy!
Janet got "Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice"
