I made this cake for a family barbecue and my mom cut a sliver and turned the cake around so that I wouldn't see it. I was mortified when I did. My dad, whose sweet tooth is the size of a T-Rex, asked me to make one just for him and everyone I passed commented on the cake, AND my sliver sneaking mom returned at 10pm, for another slice just to learn the cake plate was reduced to crumbs and she confessed to eating them. This is a great receive. It brings families together.
love this cake! I make it in a bundt pan and sprinkle icing sugar on top instead of icing.
This looks like the recipe my grandmother made during WW2 when rationing was a way of life. Simple and delicious! We come full circle.
