Recipe by CookingBlues
I found this recipe in a magazine (Southern Living I think), and I've been making it ever since. My friends always request this cake and the recipe, and my Grandmother takes it to all kinds of church functions. It's quick to put together, but no one will ever know how easy it really is. And I make it with fat free sour cream, skim milk, and egg substitute when the girls come over so we aren't guilty afterwards. Doesn't change the taste at all. Hope you enjoy!
