I have been making this cake for 17 years. I got this from a family friend. She was an elderly lady at that time. She had never shared this recipe with anyone. I can not tell you how wonderful this cake is. It is so moist. We have been making this cake for the holidays ever since. I am not sure if she is still living or not, but I am so THANKFUL, that she shared this with me so long ago. My family LOVES it and I take one to work every year, and it is gone in a heartbeat.
