This is a light, delightful cake that I got the recipe for while visiting Kathy in rural Arizona. Lovely on those hot, dry days and a perfect accompaniment for social teatime gatherings! I couldn't find a duplicate on here, so I am posting it for safekeeping (found the recipe wadded up in my purse upon my return...)

This looked like a very old recipe that I had somehow misplaced. It is! A heavier cake that I served chilled. Delicious! Every bit as good as I remembered. Prepared for PAC FALL 2008 Thanks Pookatron.

This cake was easy to put together and the flavore was good; however, it was a bit chewy for my taste. Also, I would recommend adding the beaten egg LAST in the sauce if you don't want it to become gummy or eggy.
