  1. This cake has wonderful flavor and the old time texture we no longer get with our pudding in the mix cake mixes that ooze with moisture. I baked this as a 13x9 (as the recipe states) but I feel it would be spectacular as a layer cake. The recipe certainly has enough frosting to cover it. Oh, the frosting...I could eat myself into a sugar induced coma over that is simply THAT good. Meppie, I am going to miss you.
