    Yia Yia's Note:

    This is an family recipe from my husband's family, from his great-grandmother. They were from the South and there is a note on the recipe card "Civil War Recipe". It's a little different from the others posted, and very good.

      Very nice indeed. This is what my mother would have called a Snacking Cake. I skipped the raisins to lower the sugars and doubled the nuts (I used pecans). My sugar was 1/3 a cup of Splenda Brown Sugar and wouldn't want it any sweeter. I also used 1/2 the amount of shortening and made up the difference with unsweetened applesauce. For the spice, Penzey's Apple Pie Spice was ideal. It's moist and very well flavored, in fact I think it will be even better tomorrow. I made a 6 serving amount and baked it in an 8" cake pan. The coffee adds to the flavor and character but lays mildly in the background. Thank you Yia Yia for sharing a lovely family recipe. *NOTE*: I was right this is even better the next day and you MUST try a slice slathered with peanut butter!!!!!

      Made for PAC, Spring 2007 ~ Well, I might have taken a lot away from what this cake was meant to be like, 'cause I substituted a cup of apple juice for the brewed coffee!! Still, from my point of view, the cake turned out well, & tasted just fine! If nothing else, I'd be interested in making this again for it's historical aspect!
