My mother got this recipe from Helen Osbourne who ran the church librarby in Eastland TX. This cake is dense and moist and oh so rich. On top of all that, its EASY! Its been a standard go-to recipe for years! Enjoy!
The original recipe calls for it to be iced in the pan and served as a sheet cake, but I have used in in layer cakes. Just use parchment paper in the pan so it comes out easily!
