This is a recipe I got from my Aunt Peanut as we loving call her.It starts with a brew.The brew is started in a glass or crock container with a loose fitting lid.It must be stired every day with a wooden spoon.It takes lots of time but is well worth the wait.I usually make this cake on Thanksgiving or Christmas.It has become a family tradition.Hope ya'll enjoy it as much as we do.
