I found this recipe in the newspaper twenty years ago. I was impressed by the author's stories about life in the homefront during WWII so I decided to try this recipe. It was very good even without the allspice.

My family loves this cake! I substituted unsweetened apple sause for the oil to make it healthier and it turned out fantastic! Very easy.
