    Galley Wench's Note:

    Sourdough is believed to have originated in Ancient Egyptian times around 1500 BC, and was likely the first form of leavening available to bakers. Comes from a November 1978 Better Homes and Garden magazine. I haven't made this in years but it is delicious!

      Super delicious straight from the oven!!! I will be frosting it later after it cools, but half the cake has been eaten already because the family loved it so much. I'm definitely saving this recipe! It's a winner!

      GW, you can always be relied on to post great recipes and no change with this one. It was so good, when I went to my larder I found I just had 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon left but it wasn't noticed in the finnished cake. The picture only shows just half the cake as my work mates will get the other half, so it's boxed up ready to go. I just know they will love it too. Thank's for posting another great sourdough recipe I am gradually working my way through the list.

      Made this today, I made some slight changes, substituted sugar for 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup organic honey. I also added some raisins and topped with pumpkin seeds before baking. Very moist and very delicious a bonus to use my sourdough in this recipe to. Will def make this again :))
