I have an awesome recipe I'd like to share with you. I'm 66 years old and this is an heirloom recipe my mother made and handed down to me. It's from an old 1913 cookbook from her mother. I have no idea where the name came from but the cake is wonderful and moist and needs no frosting.I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
