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. Nancy...11/29/12
