    Kat's Mom's Note:

    On vacation in Gatlinburg, I purchased an old timey cookbook called "A Taste Of The Past" by Phyllis Connor. Each recipe has notes about the family history of the recipe and this one is from Elizabeth Sparks, author of N. C. And Old Salem Cookery. I am including the frosting recipe she recommended, but you can use your favorite if you are uneasy about using the egg whites. This recipe is from a 90 year old woman who got the recipe from her mother. Talk about surviving the test of time! How did she live to such a ripe old age eating uncooked eggs? ;)

      I really enjoyed how easy this cake was ... not to mention how it tastes! I altered the recipe by substituting lemon juice for the vanilla and soaked poppy seeds in the buttermilk for a few hours. Fill between the layers with thickened lemon pudding and my sister's favorite lemon poppyseed cake! Thanks!

      This is a moist, delicious cake. Mine was somewhat a failure - I could not get the cakes out of the pans. Next time I make, I will grease AND flour the pans. Usually I always do this but the recipe didn't call for flouring so I didn't, lesson learned. Also, it took closer to 40 minutes to test done. I used a Betty Crocker mix for the fluffy white frosting - this was also a failure for me - probably due to the high humidity we had that day. Brought the cake into work and so far, 3 people have said excellent cake they didn't care that it was lopsided! I WILL be making this again hopefully with better results.
