This recipe's more than a recipe to usit's a family tradition, three generations old. The frosting's a mustotherwise it's not the "true" cake!
We have a timber stand with hickory trees on our farm, so getting enough nuts is easy. The problem is finding someone to crack and pick them and the "someone" usually ends up to me!
I bake a lot of pies, cakes, rolls and bread. Three of our four children are now married, but with eight grandchildren, I still have plenty of takers for treats.
