    Gingerbee's Note:

    Momma made great big smiles with this wonderfully moist and delicious cake! I believe it's originally a newspaper clipping, but she's used it for the past 45 years at least. Filled with your favorite fruits and icing, this cake lends itself to any special occassion. I hope you like it as much as I do! Enjoy!!

      I just finished making this cake. I love how fast and easy it is to mix up - just one bowl for clean-up is ALWAYS a winning aspect of a recipe for me! The cakes baked up beautifully and evenly. I didn't have cake flour and since the recipe noted an alternate for when you don't have cake flour I went ahead and did that rather than make cake flour substitute. The only problem I had was that I could not get the cakes to release from the pans. One layer wound up falling apart. I couldn't get the other one out either so instead of continuing to try I decided to leave it in the pan to frost and decorate. I did grease and flour my pans... but I only did so lightly. Perhaps if they were heavily greased and floured instead the cakes would have released. I will try that next time, and I may line the bottoms of the pans with parchment as well. (And yes there will be a next time for this recipe!) The flavor is wonderful - light and not too sweet. The texture is lovely as well - moist but slightly crumbly, airy yet dense - it's just right in all aspects. It is a fragile cake though - so use care when handling the layers. It tastes great plain, and also pairs well with buttercream frosting.
