My daddy gave me this recipe several years ago and said "Here this is what I want for my birthday cake. Make it." LOL so I did. Really moist cake. You can leave the walnuts out if you like or have nut allergies. I leave them out because daddy told me to. And well I have to do what daddy says right?
Hope y'all enjoy this
