This cake is a favorite of my mother. She passed the recipe to me and now I bake it for her for special occasions. It's perfect for breakfast, with a hot cup of coffee or as a special dessert, warmed with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Cake and pie lovers unite over this spectacular cake. This cake has now become a favorite of my 10 year old daughter and I can see, by her enthusiasm every time I make it, that she'll be baking it for me in no time.
