This recipe was handed down to me from my Great Grandmother (see picture). This is the original recipe, I've revised mine a little bit, but mainly because of the lard. I cook it in a 9X11 pan and it NEVER fails for me. Take it out of the oven, split in half and put butter on it and taste a small bit of heaven!!!!!
