I got the basis of this recipe from my mom, who got it from my grandmother (her mother-in-law). The original was the same as Recipe #17480, but I've cut back on the fat. You could also cut back on the sugar by using Splenda or something; I just dislike the taste of it, myself, so I don't use it. It can be made either as a layer cake (about 8-10 servings) or a sheet cake (about 14-18 servings); I usually make a sheet cake since it gives more servings, so that is the serving info given. Time doesn't include cooling time.
