My mom purchased this cake from our annual church bazaar! She was generous and gave half of the cake to me! Wow, it was so good! It was moist, dense and delicious!

Very easy to make and very moist. I served it with vanilla ice cream but imagine serving it with butter pecan ice cream would be even better!
