I got this from an article (and I can't remember where I read it). It was about a family who had family reunions every year and they put together their favourite recipes. This was one of them which was in their family for many years. After you taste it, you'll know why it's a favourite! If you want to add a cream cheese icing, do it when the cake has completely cooled. I have tried many recipes but haven't found one that I really like yet so I serve it plain and it still disappears quickly!
