My grandma gave this recipe to my mom, who taught both my brother and me how to make it. I LOVE this cake for breakfast, and think that the crumbs are the best part of it! The cake is not too dense and I'm told that it goes well with a cup of coffe. Because I'm not a coffe drinker, I like it with a cup of peppermint tea.
