Mama Grace and her sister n law Pearlie Harris would bake this cake a month to two months before Christmas. They told me they kelp the cake sealed tight, and would slice apples to put on top of the cake, then pour bourbon whiskey over it, you can smell this cake all over the house,my family love this cake, Mama Grace was a very good cook and she loved cooking, Mama Grace was the last sibling of her family living until December, 11,2014 she was ninety three years old.
