Recipe by Dienia B.

My mom Florence made this cake. I think it came by way of Aunt Shirley. It's moist and has a good flavor.

This is a wonderful cake. Super moist and keeps so well. We love the spices and, when possible, try to use mincemeat with rum or brandy. Thanks Dienia B. - your mom knew a good cake!!!!
