This is an Old South recipe for a quick cake you could make when the preacher was dropping by. It calls for two of almost everything and includes two sticks of butter creamed with the sugar as some other recipes do not. I got this recipe almost 50 years ago included with the baking pan given to me as a wedding shower gift from my Aunt Meda.
