Since I received a copy of this recipe in 1980, I have baked this cake numerous times, and it is so good! I love that it doesn't need any eggs, and the ingredients are usually in my cupboard, so I can bake it when the spirit moves me to bake a cake. With a dusting of powdered sugar on top, or without, or with frosting, it is delicious and it can be made and baked in the pan.
