When I was growing up I remember my aunt that raised me and another aunt making this cake every yeaR FOR the holidays. My Aunt Helen would make them to give as gifts. She told me she had gotten the the original recipe from her older sister. So I have tried to continue the tradition. But thought it was a little dry so have added applesauce to the recipe.
