We always had dessert when we visited my grandparents' farm, and this was one of our favorites. During harvesttime, my brothers and sisters and I would take this or another dessert out to the field for the workers.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 20, 2012

I make these for my husband several times a month and he loves them. So moist and easy to make! I add instant coffee to the water which deepens the flavor and have also added chocolate chips. SO good!
