I received this recipe from a church friend. She had made this delicious cake for a shower and I loved it. I had to have the recipe and she graciously shared it with me. This is a tried and true recipe that has stood the test of time. It is great for any occasion. If I don't make one of these cakes every so often, my family will ask me to make one! The recipe can be doubled and the extra cake can be frozen to be used later. This cake is not too sweet so fresh, summer fruit is a perfect accompaniment, especially strawberries!
