When I moved across the country, the first thing my mom did was sit down and put together a cookbook for me of family favorite recipes. This cake recipe was included in it.

It is so simple and delicious, almost as easy as making a cake from a box, but with that happy satisfaction that you made it yourself.

Because there are apparently people here complaining about "copying" recipes from the internet, here is the link to where I originally posted this recipe on my blog. kizzthecook.blogspot.com/...ake.html
