Brenda's Ho Ho Cake

Bea L.


This is a very light and rather refreshing cake. My friend, Brenda, makes this cake often and it's always a big hit. Even though I have made it myself, I always call it her recipe because she loves to make this cake. She would be so proud that I have submitted this recipe.
