This recipe came from my grandmothers recipe box. She use to make it all the time. I would stop and visit with her on the way home from school. I always walked home and she would watch for me to go by and invite me in for a piece of cake and glass of milk. She is the reason I love to bake. I wish I could still share recipes with her now.
