While remembering the family friend who gave me the other cherished cake recipe I posted today (Florence's Fruit Cake)I saw this one in my favorites folder too. It is so good, and I haven't baked it in ages, but I will soon. I loved this woman, she was a quiet, but sweet mother and wife, and she lived in the same neighborhood I did when we summered on Martha's Vineyard. I thought of her as an Aunt but we were not related;I was so fond of her. Dot was a great cook too!
