This recipe was from the Parke-Davis Cafeteria in Detroit, Michigan in the 1940's. My Grandpa Joe worked there, and loved this recipe so much, he bugged the cafeteria staff until they gave it up.
It makes a really moist loaf, or cupcakes. If you decide to frost them, I suggest using a cream-cheese frosting. Yum!
