This recipe was printed in the Toronto Star way back in 1990 and was featured in an article about The Elmwood Bed and Breakfast in Charlottetown, P.E.I. My family likes cake anytime and this recipe appeals to me in that it is made with easily obtainable ingredients, is not too sweet and can be enjoyed for breakfast or with a cup of coffee during the day.
