I was given this recipe by my late mother-in-law many decades ago. It is truly a classic and everyone who tastes it comes back for more! (Note: was asked if this was a pic of my cake. No it's not. I'm having to wait till I lock the men out of the house to be able to bake it and get a photo without it being one of a few crumbs LOL)
