Rochester Cake

One of my favorite cookbooks is a Mennonite Community Cookbook. It's full of absolutely delicious rustic simple meals that are made from scratch in the amish/mennonite households... and Naturally, the biggest section is the dessert section. This cake caught my eye and boy was it tasty! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
