Recipe by Karen..

This is from my grandmother's recipe box given to me over 20 years ago. Most of the recipes are VERY OLD and the directions show it, but she was an excellent cook, so they are worth figuring out!

I usually make cakes from online when I can't reach my Sis because she is a professional baker .. My cakes usually comes out great except now .. I made this and as much everyone said it came out good .. Mines didn't I had to throw it in the trash .. It was raw n sifted flour didn't dissolve .. It looked n smelled beautiful but when it came out a complete disaster .. I made carrot cake the same time as this that came out beautiful ..
