Found this in January 19, 2015 edition of Woman's World Magazine. Some of Trisha Yearwood's favorite foods. I think this might become my favorite. I am baking this as I add this recipe. It sounded so good and easy I had to try it. Well, it is ready to eat. My husband has already eaten 3 slices. He says it is the best he has even eaten. It is very light And very good
