I've been collecting recipes since I was in junior high school back in the '60s. I don't remember how old this recipe is, but I cut it out of a Southern Living magazine years ago. My friends at church love this cake and I don't ever have any leftovers! Hope you like it too! Double the recipe and it fits in a full size restaurant pan and feeds 32.
