I cut this recipe out of a magazine, probably in the middle 80's! It has been sitting in my cake recipe file....for years! This recipe was from a lady in Calif. She received it from her aunt in Norway! All I know is that it is a family treasure from long ago. It looks delicious. Please enjoy... Nancy 11/25/12
