This recipe comes from my husband's sweet grandma (Moma Chloe). She made everything with love and a smile! This cake is very moist and freezes well.

With no icing, this cake is so darn easy to transport... which is good since you'll be getting requests for it from all corners! It's sweet and fruity with a healthy hint of cinnamon. The Test Kitchen
