This was my grandmother's favorite cake to make. My mother made it a lot, too, and now I do. It can be sliced thin and topped with strawberries (or any fruit) and whipped cream for a super dessert.

"cake texture came out very good. The taste was a flour flavor. I think this recipe could use butter for flavor. My family including my dog didn't like this cake."
