I was making supper for my parents one night because they were cashing in a dinner coupon I had given them so long ago none of us could remember expiration date on the coupon. And I needed a a recipe that would go with coffee. So I got on the computer and found a War Cake recipe but didn't have all the ingredients so substituted a little of this for a little of that and voila a new recipe was born. And parents loved it. My Mom has tried to make it but did not use the same ingredients as I did and it didn't taste as good she said. :)
