  1. I’ve been making this cake since I saw it in 1978. It was my go-to cake for my daughter (it’s her favorite!) and to any potlucks I went to. After losing the recipe a couple of months ago, I was desperate to find it again. Thank you, Thank You!

  2. Thank you so much! My mom always used to make this for my birthday. She’s been gone for over 30 years and I was thinking of how she would make this for me. My birthday is this month and I’ll be baking it and thinking of her!!
