"Folks I love to cook but I've never been big on "Baking" There is 2 ckes total in my receipes that I've actually done. Apple walnut cake {from T.O.H} that's to die for and THIS cake which is equally good! It tastes even better than a warmed up Honey Bun that you buy out of a store. Men LOVE this especially! So if you have a special "Fellaw" in your life surprise him/them with this delicious cake today!!"
