    gertc96's Note:

    This was made by my grandmother every Holiday. She would make three or four of these at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Her mom, Grandma Florence, made these for her when she was growing up. It has been passed down now to me, the fourth generation. Enjoy.

      I can certainly see why this one was handed down through the generations! It's fantastic. I prepared it exactly as directed, except my oven needed about an hour and 15 minutes, but then its a bit slow. It made a beautiful, big, dark cake -- the moistest I've ever eaten, and yet not soggy! My 20-yr-old son was the biggest fan, eating half the cake himself over the space of 2-3 days, and he rarely eats desserts of any kind. I will definitely be preparing this one next time I'm invited to bring along a cake to a get-together. Thanks so much for posting it!

      This was so good. Almost a cross between a fruit cake and a quick bread -- moist and full of different flavors. My mom took one bite and said, "Your grandfather would have loved this." He's been gone some years now and for that to be her first comment really told me I had found a winner. I can see why this was your grandmother's trademark holiday cake -- it is just so special -- not an every day cake. This is a cake for sharing with hot coffee and conversation and love all around. Thanks for posting.

      I didn't care at all for the spice and chocolate pairing, but my husband thought it was OK.
