During high school days, a friend invited me over for Sunday lunch. Her mother made this delicious cake.

My sick dad requested it for Easter lunch so it is still a favorite of ours.

How to Make Georgia Special


  1. OPTIONAL: May add fresh berries to the top of your cake or chopped pecans.

    This is a very moist, fruity cake and when you add raspberries and black berries or blueberries to the top, it is indeed special.

  2. *NOTE*

    You may swap the Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix for Butter Cake Mix. Use a half cup of Crisco with the D.H. Butter Cake Mix also. (I made this recipe this morn with a D.H. Butter Cake Mix since I didn't have a yellow cake mix.)
