My cousin gave me this recipe in 1963, shortly after I got married. I've made it many times and family and friends always rave about it. The first time I made it, I was sure I did something wrong because the batter was very watery. I baked it and it was just wonderful. So don't panic if you batter is different than a regular cake mix.
