    As a young girl I used to make this cake all of the time.I even wona 1st. place ribbon at the fair one year. My mother had given the receipt to my aunt and when my mother died in a car crash the receipt was lost. Thank-you so much I am now 60 and have the receipt again. This cake is also good with a cream cheese frostin with two teaspoons of lemon juice in it. That is what helped me win the ribbon.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
