I have been looking for the OLD recipe for years and this sounds like it! Thank you so much for this. When I was out of state in college, my mom would occasionally bake one of these and send it to me. It wasn't long before dorm mates would watch for me to get a 'package to pick up' notice and be waiting for me to get this cake. lol, it got to the place that I was getting very little of it. so many memories of Mom, who passed away last June, in this recipe! She just made it from the recipe on the box, so when it stopped being printed on the box and later was the newer recipe, her version was lost.

Jewel, what a blessing this recipe is. My house has burnt and I lost momma's recipe that she used. I remember how her and my grandmother were the sheros with some of the awesome foods that they would make for family get-together's and how this one was the prize! Thank you again!

You know, Ladies, this recipe may be the one I knew as "Commodity Cake." It surely sounds like what I remember!!!
