    whitan's Note:

    Cafe grants desperate wish is the newspaper headline just above this recipe posting in the Austin American-Statesman. The requestor of the recipe was begging for this recipe, saying the cake was undoubtedly the most sinfully delicious cake she had ever tasted. The Old Pecan Street Cafe is still open on 6th Street in Austin, Texas.

      I previously had a recipe from the Austin American-Statesman newspaper, and it was similar yet not nearly as good as this one! I used lite butter in the frosting then, and it was too soft/runny. Real butter this time made the frosting with the appropriate spreading consistency.
