This cake is locally famous and so good! I always frost it with my Eva Rae's cream cheese frosting Eva Rae's Cream Cheese Frosting.

I have made this a few times and it is very easy and very good. I add a cup of finely chopped walnuts and half a cup of raisins as well as 1/4 tsp nutmeg. My batter seems to be a bit too wet so I add about 1/4 cup more flour. I used a bundt pan today and baked it for an hour and fifteen minutes at 325. Turned out perfect! Now to put on some cream cheese frosting...yummy!
