  1. This cake has been in our family for many,many years, can remember helping my mom make this when I could barely see over the counter top. So glad to find this recipe, Mom has passed on and her recipes did not make it me.
    Super easy and so delicious. Doesn’t matter if you use white or yellow cake mix, will taste just as good.
