marilyn's notes for this recipe:
I received this recipe from a co-worker. She made it and brought it to work for everyone to try.It would make you hurt yourself eating it,it was so good. I made it for the family get together for thanksgiving. I didn't bring any home,it was so tasty.It is a great cake for any occasion. In the spring or summer u could use the Banana or Pineapple recipe. In fall and winter you could use the Peanut Butter or Pumpkin recipe.I know you will enjoy this cake.
Make it Your Way...
