    I'm a bit surprised at all the 5 star reviews since the amount of sugar is over the top. I used 1 3/4 cups because 2 full cups seemed like way too much and truthfully mine was still so very sweet...this coming from someone who enjoys sweets too. I also felt it was too moist. Like sticking to your fingers moist. Maybe a bit more flour and alot less sugar.

    Thanks for the memories! My grandfather's wife, Anne (an old Italian woman who "was not my grandmother, so don'tcall her that!") ?? gave me this recipe back in 1988. I lost her and then lost the recipe... I would try to recreate it but to no avail. I have the taste, just not the texture and keep factors. Here we go! A golden yellow batter, with a warm caramel colored finish. The thin crispy top makes you think "overcooked?" but no, the cake is wonderfully moist. This is one of the best recipes to freeze and thaw when that unexpected guest stops by.
