This is a recipe that I want to enter into the Heirloom recipe contest. My Mother used to make this cake for my Dad's lunch. My sister and I did not like this cake then, nor do we now! We always wanted layer cakes with frosting. He was unable to carry a layer frosted cake in his lunch, so we had very few of those cakes. Needless to say I will not have an attached photo.
