Top Review by Lisa M.

Wonderful!!!!! I followed recipe exactly as given. I think this is better than Cracker Barrel. I keep my cake in the fridge so it stays cool and moist longer. Made this for Labor Day get together, made another the next Sunday.This recipe is definitely a keeper.Thanks to whomever placed this online. Lisa K.
