I have had this recipe for a very long time and make it several times a year, and particularly around Thanksgiving. Like all of my recipes, I have "tweaked" it to my taste.

This cake could possibly be considered a "bar cookie" as well, though it does have the consistency of a soft, moist and dense cake.

I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do!
