Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! My sweet aunt used to make this for me for my birthday every year and she passed away in 2011 and I have searched everywhere and finally found it and it is currently in the oven and I can't wait for my 2 kids to try it! This is the best cake I have ever had!!!

Thanks ... have looked for this recipe for years. Used to make it all the time when kids were small and lost it somewhere. They loved it then and hope I can surprise them by making it again now that they are parents. Thanks!!!
