I have used this recipe for many a years...The kids loved this because they could grab it and go...by the slice...at times I would make my raisin lemon sauce for it too like I do for my gingerbread recipe...I serve the sauce hot on the cake...This is a fabulous recipe I found in one of my old readers digest cookbooks....
