This is made in the microwave, but do not fear it comes out awesome!! I got this from a jell-o cookbook that is a very hard find. I wanted to share this with everyone since I had to hunt down the book after I lost the first one. You will thoroughly enjoy this!! I have made it a Christmas tradition cake to bring when visiting, but I also make it year round.
