My Mother-in law made this cake in the winter. It was my husbands'favorite.This was originally known as " Waldorf War Cake" as it was baked during WWI, when there was a shortage of granulated sugar and eggs.My husband liked chocolate icing, I like vanilla icing. They are both good.This cake is baked at 300 degrees
