My mother has been making this cake for birthdays & holidays for almost 40 years! It is my absolute fave and always gets raves about it. She generally will double this recipe to fit in a 13 x 9 pan. It is a very moist cake made with no Dairy or Eggs. It is good with Butter Cream Frosting and especially with Peanut Butter frosting.

This was great. I used canola oil instead of veggie oil, so I could be sure it was dairy and soy free (allergies) I made a peanut butter frosting for it, but it would have been wonderful with alone or with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
