When I was first married my husband and I went to live in Malawi , Africa where I met a great American lady named Dee who shared her friendship and this cake with me. I have been making this cake for over 30 years and I always get asked for the recipe. It is delicious, moist and so yummy especially warm with homemade ice cream!!!
