    I have been making this cake for 50 years and my Mother before. It is a great cake.

    Very sweet and decadent. I might change the topping next time since my son didn't care for it. I love how moist this was without being soggy. My only change was to bake in a 9 inch round cake pan. Next time I'll try to cut back on fat by using applesauce instead of butter and maybe fiddle with the carb count for my diet. I did have some and it was worth the cheat tho. :-)

    Every year for my birthday my mom would ask me what kind of cake i wanted and I picked this one ever time. Im 57 now and my mom quit making me cakes years ago but I still love this cake. I believe the recipe is exactly the same.

    Made a vegan version of this. I used 2/3 cup applesauce instead of the eggs, margarine instead of butter and soy milk in place of the cream. It turned out moist and delicious!!

    This is an amazing cake! Only minor tweaking - used 1/2 tsp soda and 1 tsp baking powder for the 1 tsp soda. Used 1 1/2 times the topping. Baked in a cast iron skillet, and lined the bottom with parchment paper. So yummy!!

    Baked this for our church tea, only used 1/2 the sugar and used Oatmilk instead of Cream or Normal milk in the topping, It was a hit and loved by everyone, including the children.
