This recipe hails from a farmers wives cookbook.The recipe says it makes the whole house smell good while it's baking and that it is a "prize winning cake." You will see that it certainly does make the house smell good!And it is a hearty,good and easy cake!Serve with a dollup of whipped cream...or some people like to make a lemon sauce of their choice.I doubt you will be sorry you tried this one!
