POOR MAN'S CAKE

MY YOUNGER BROTHER "PUDGY" LOVED TO COOK. THIS WAS ONE OF HIS RECIPES. HE WOULD BAKE THEM AND GIVE THEM AWAY TO ALL HIS FRIENDS AT CHRISTMAS. HE HAS PASSED AWAY NOW BUT I MAKE THIS CAKE EVERY CHRISTMAS IN HIS HONOR. IT NOT ONLY TASTE GOOD AND IS A LITTLE OLD FASHIONED BUT IT JUST MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD.
