My husband's mother made this recipe and he wanted one. She passed away about 12 years ago. I called his aunt, who got the recipes his mother had, and thankfully she found that recipe and gave it to me. He likes it because it isn't overly sweet. He said his mother liked it because she didn't have to bother with making icing!
