This version of this cake is so much like the one my mother used to make and it continues to be one of my most requested cakes for potlucks, family gatherings and bake sales. I always keep the ingredients on hand for this cake, and it's alway's a welcome and comforting treat. I bake it in a 9"x13" pan. My favorite way to enjoy it is with a hot cup of coffee...simply wonderful!
