I searched and searched for this recipe on the web. Never did find it. Luckily, I found a scrap of paper with the instructions scribbled on it! This is the best cake! Mom used to make it all the time as we were growing up.

I make this cake yesterday. Use all-purpose flour instead of cake flour and 1/2 cup of sugar less. The texture was very nice which is soft and moist. Taste just like the cake that my mom bake 30 years ago.

I've made this cake many times now. Its easy to make and delicious too. It is very sweet but when I tried making it with less sugar it didnt taste quite as nice.
