"I turn to this recipe when unexpected guests drop by because I usually have the ingredients in the cupboard," writes the Caro, Michigan baker. For a special occasion, top slices with fresh fruit.

"I made this recipe in a Bundt pan, and served applesauce on each slice. The cake was moist and flavorful."
