Spiced Sherry Cake
My mother received this recipe from a friend years ago when fluted tube pans first became popular. The cake lasts a few days in the refrigerator, if you don't eat it all right away. I personally love to serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. —Debbie Pelletier, Jupiter, Florida

My family loves this cake! I use a quality Tawny Port and it came out perfectly. The first try at this recipe I used a cheap sherry
