My sister in law Barbara is the baker in our family. I don't think there's anything she can't bake. This is her recipe and it's one of the best and most requested recipe!!

When ever Barbara brings this cake to an outing, you can be sure it’s the first thing on the dessert table to disappear.

People will get a slice of this cake before they fix there lunch/dinner plate just to make sure they get a piece.

Those that don’t know about this little trick are lucky to get a crumb when they go searching out the dessert table.
