This is an original plain, but good cake from my Indiana mother-in-law Nellie,and her Womans World Cookbook 1961. It has served many, many parties over the years. Usually just powdered sugar and served with her churned home-made ice cream. My version I tweaked to make a "Mocha Whipping Creamed Cake" in a 9x13 cake pan, and then covered it with canned Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy Coconut Pecan Frosting. This is a very delicate tasting mocha cake with a delicious topping! YUM!! Please enjoy. Nancy...1/18/13
