This delicious cake recipe has been around a very long time.
It was the rage in the 40's! during WORLD WAR 2 era.
Why is it called a "CHOP SUEY" cake ??
I can not find an answer, but I believe
it is because it looks a little like...CHOP SUEY!
You may have to use your immagation a little.
O.K.,so stretch it a bit! LOL
I remember the great taste,
can you ???
NOTE: When you serve this cake,
PlEASE SAY a PRAYER, and
THANK ALL OF OUR GREAT VETERANS!
WITH OUT THEM ..WE MAY NOT BE HERE TODAY..TO ENJOY THIS CAKE
