JoSele's notes for this recipe:
This recipe has always been a family favorite. This was my Grandmothers recipe. I remember when I was little and going to spend time with her she was the most fantastic cook. She always made my favorites when i would go and visit. No wonder my mom is such a great cook. She made everything from scratch. I hope you enjoy it too........

You can omit the cocoa and add spices to make a great spice cake also.
