    This turned out wonderfully! I served it to my parents and my Dad said it was just like his mother used to make. The baking time is a little long. I took my cake out with 4 minutes left and it was slightly burnt. I think it would have been done between 35 and 40 minutes. Well worth the effort to make a cake from scratch.
