This is not meant to be baked in a 9x9 pan, a 9x13 is more like it! Very good flavor!

This brings back wonderful memoryies of baking with my grandma when I was young. I don't have her recipe but this is exactly like the one she made right down to the frosting, we must have doubled ther recipe as we always made a 9x13, It is easy, moist,dense and flavorful. Thanks for sharing, I can't wait to make it for my family.

This is an old fashioned cake. When I was growing up we called it "Lazy Dazy Cake". I always double the broiled on frosting ingredients. I'm glad to have found the recipe for this sentimental favorite!
