I remember the first time my Grandma made this cake.

My grandparents stayed with my brother and I when my parents went to Hawaii for vacation in 1972. So I was about 10-11 yrs old.
There is nothing more comforting to me as a child than cooking in the kitchen with Grandma, as she was an excellent cook hands down!

So, This recipe has been in our family for over 40+ years.

I served this last night at a big family dinner and as you can see, only a couple slices left, I had to fight them off to save enough for the photo shot!! :)

Hope you love it as much as my family does!

  2. Mix all ingredients well and pour into pan. Bake until done, about 35-40 min.Let cool. Turn on to cake pedestal.
  3. Mix Powder Sugar with either water or milk(your preference) and use a spoon to pour glaze over cake.
