This recipe was published in a Southern Living magazine and my sister and I love it. YOU MUST USE A KITCHEN AID MIXER OR SIMILAR STAND MIXER! You cannot use a hand mixer or rotary bowl mixer. Easy and Yummy. You can glaze with thinned apricot preserves for a little more decadence. I have used the recipe for petit fours baked in a 10 x 15 pan with a poured/dipped fondant. This recipe always brings compliments. Prep time includes cooling.

Delicious, delicious, delicious!! My DH — not a baker — wanted this cake after seeing it in the May 2010 Southern Living. He decided to make it himself, and it is surprisingly divine. Homey, dense, buttery, with a slightly crunchy exterior. We topped with a bit of powdered sugar and paired the slices with fresh, sliced strawberries. Heavenly.

This is incredibly easy to make and tastes delicious! Dianne from VA
