This recipe was given to my mother by a fellow Army Wife in the 60's. It's been a family favorite as long as I can remember.

  • 3Sauce:
    While cake is baking combine sugar, evaporated milk and butter in small sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until it reaches a continuous rolling boil for one minute. Remove from heat.
  • 4Remove cake from oven and use a knife to make slits into the cake at random intervals. (This will allow the sauce to soak into the interior of the cake better) Pour sauce over cake and try to keep everyone away until it cools enough to eat. Ask.com has some good treatments for burned tongues.
