This is a delicious recipe I have made many times.
I found it in a magazine, years ago. You can tell by the aged paper! The year ????? - 70,s.???
I would like to share it with you.
Like the recipe says...It is a handy loaf cake to have in the freezer for unexpected guests.
It needs no frosting, but a
little sprinkle of powdered sugar is nice.
When my boys were small..they liked to help me cook...and loved sprinkling the "SNOW" on cakes, cookies, and doughnuts.
