My mother has been making this cake for 30 years. It takes minimal time to prepare and is so very moist!

After one bite of this cake, you'll know why this recipe is going to be your go-to for any potluck. The evaporated milk and butter mixture that gets poured over the hot cake makes each slice very moist. We love the crunchy buttery topping. Whether you serve this super easy to prepare cake warm or chilled, it's going to be a big hit. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
