Leah's Story

This recipe comes from my husband's sweet grandma (Moma Chloe). She made everything with love and a smile! This cake is very moist and freezes well.

With no icing, this cake is so darn easy to transport... which is good since you'll be getting requests for it from all corners! It's sweet and fruity with a healthy hint of cinnamon.

    We don't frost it! ha Didn't even think about that! ha It is more like a coffee cake or a sweet bread. Very dense.

    In your recipe it call for flour is that All-Purpose, or Self-rising? I guess it All-Purpose because it calls for baking soda, I'm I right? The recipe sound good and I'm going to make it as soon as I'm sure about the flour. I wish all recipes that calls for flour that it would say which flour to use. Thanks for your time!
