    mailbelle's Note:

    Johnny Cash was my husband's cousin and I was lucky enough to obtain a cookbook of Johnny's mother's recipes titled, "Favorite Recipes From Mama Cash's Kitchen." I've been asked to post some of the recipes from the book and this is one of them.

      This is a great chocolate cake with a little something extra from the cinnamon. I really enjoyed it. I used 1 stick of butter and baked it in a 13x9 inch baking pan for about 22 minutes.

      I have a recipe for a sheet cake that is almost like this - except for the shortening and cinnamon. It calls for 1 stick of butter to be used.

      I asked my Mom how much a cube was because her parents owned a little country grocery store during the depression. She thinks since it is a cake it is a stick. But says in some recipes it could be a tablespoon. They would sell it by the tablespoon during the depression.
