Patti's notes for this recipe:
We have always called this a cake but to me it is more "brownie" like. No matter what you call them, they are sinful! I like them best warm and gooey! Easy to make and great to eat!

This is such a good cake (brownie cake)...I started making it in the 1960's. It was always the cake my Daughter asked for every year for her birthday cake.
