This is my husband's favorite. His mom gave it to us many years ago. I have refined the recipe just a little since then. Please don't tell her...hehe. It doesn't need a frosting because it is so yummy just by itself, but it would dress it up to drizzle with a thin creamy icing. I had misplaced this recipe for the longest time and had thought I had lost it, so I hadn't made it for ages. My husband found it this weekend and I have made it twice since then. Both times it was gone before it was even all the way cooled, thanks to our 5 daughters. My husband and I barely managed to claim a few bites before it disappeared. I'm posting it here to share with everyone and to keep it from ever getting lost again. It's definately a keeper.
