Recipe by aksingingbreeze

This is a very simple, yummy cake (it is fairly sweet, so feel free to cut back on the sugar). I made this back when I was as young as 8. Thanks to Elizabeth Middleton for sharing this recipe with my family.

A simple, quick desert. Be warned--it is very sweet. Excellent if you are in a hurry and still want something that tastes good.
