Chop Suey Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Jane from Ohio

My Aunt sent me this recipe about 15 years ago from the Detroit Free Press. This cake is so-o-o-o-o delicious. Everytime I make this cake, someone always asks for the recipe. It's also easy to make.

I learned how to make this cake when I was 17, from a friend. Back then it was a "secret recipe." I guess it's not-so-secret anymore. Delicious cake :o)
