This was in last Sunday's paper and I made it to bring in to work today. Several of my coworkers enthused over it and requested the recipe. The recipe called for one cup of chopped nuts, but I left them out.

I have been making this cake for several years. I got the recipe from a TOH cookbook. I love it. Actually took it to my county fair a couple of years ago and won a 2nd place ribbon.
