Mrs Gonzales gave me this recipe when I lived in New Mexico for 2 years- she was a member of our parish and this was her sons favorite cake- guess what her boy's names were- Mathew,Mark,Luke and John; all were altar boys.
This is a very good cake to serve as an after school snack.
And if any is left better the next day!!
