This recipe was also put on JAP by my Daughter Diana Porter from Osage Wy. It is one of my very favorite cakes and can even be turned into a fruit cake by just adding mixed fruit, purchased in the grocery stores. My Mother made it a lot and I'm so glad Diana is also making a lot of her Grandmother's recipes. I hope you all enjoy it.
