My mom has made a version of this cake for years. It's really good. She still gets requests for these every time her church has a bake sale. The only difference in her version is 1 t. cinnamon added with the flour. And yes, this cake just gets better and better the next day--when it lasts that long.

Yum! I made it with golden delicious because that was what I had - even though they are not typically good for baking. This cake has barely had a chance to cool, so it will probably even be BETTER in the morning! Very tasty... Thanks, Caryn!
