Recipe by Mizzy

my grandma on my dad's side was a superb cook and baker. She would make this cake almost every weekend. Please note that a lot of the recipes she left for us were given down orally. for example when she gave my mom and i this recipe she litterally said: Bake until done. baking times are estimated by the many times i've made this cake.
