This recipe was very simple to follow. I made it for my father-in-law trying to make the cake his grandmother made for him as a child. Although the ingredients were the same as he remembered it wasn't exactly what we were looking for. He liked it OK, I thought it was too sweet. Make sure that you like whatever syrup you choose because that is definitely what your cake will taste like.
