This recipe came from my mother-in-law, I have no idea where she obtained the recipe. My entire family loves this cake and I only make it at Christmas so before Thanksgiving everyone starts asking me if I am making it this year.

Bake in a well greased bunt pan or in loaf pans (bake time is shorter in loaf pans)

If baked in bunt pan after 24 hrs remove from fridge and invert on a cake plate at room temp until cake comes loose from bunt pan. Do not try to force this process your cake will break into pieces.
