I always remember my mom making this when we were having company. It's one of those cakes that tastes even better the longer it sits. She would cut it into squares and place it on a pretty plate and sprinkle it with powdered sugar. It was always one of my favorites. As a matter of fact, I'm having some friends over next week...I think I'll make this!!!! ;-)
