    Patti McD's Note:

    As a child, my mother told me that this was considered to be JFK's favorite cake recipe. I know it became my choice for birthday cake every year. Today I substitute Splenda blend for the sugar and double sift the dry ingredients to make it fluffy. You cannot further reduce calories by using any of the light mayonnaises. if you do not have or like miracle whip, you can substitute regular mayonnaise with no change in quality.

      This is a moist and rich cake that we all loved! I will be making it again as my son requested it for his birthday in a few months. I made a vanilla frosting to go on top and it was perfect! Thank you! Wendy
