I have a favorite cookbook that is literally falling apart..pages coming loose, pages even have splatters of batter on them. This cookbook is from the 70's and is my old stand by..one that I go to and know something good is going to come out of it when baked. This is a great little recipe I made the first time for my daughters 6th grade class in the 70's...great little find, it is brownie-like yet a cake...really a moist and delicious treat. Teacher called them brownies and wanted the recipe, so I let her think they were brownies. Brings back memories of my young Mommy days!!
