Copied this from a cookbook from First UMC in Asheboro, NC back in 1980. Very delicious.

Methodist Preacher Cake sounds so good, does anyone know what size pan to bake this in?
user sheryl foote sannf1 - Sep 18, 2011
Judging by the quantity of ingredients and baking instructions I would think a 9x13 pan would make the most sense

Sounds good and simple. I will try it.

I would think this would require eggs. Maybe not??
