i first made this cake cake in 1978 and it quickly became a family must for all get togethers. i had made it for 30 yrs then stopped baking. had the recipe and lost it in a fire. thank you so much for not forgetting such a great recipe. now I can pass it down to my Grandchildren. it was funny but my family asked me this Thanksgiving to make it , I remembered everything except the amt of sour cream and almond extract. thanks for helping restart a continueing family tradition
