    cookingpompom's Note:

    So this is my great grandmothers recipe. My Great Grand Parents owned the only shop in town, she sold slices to ladies for afternoon tea. My grandmother was handed this recipe and so on until it has come to me. I now make this for my DH and 4 children - this is their FAVOURITE cake of all time. As the 4th generation to hold and use this recipe and am looking forward to passing this on to my children.
