"Tried this when having over-night guests. Had to do baking 2 days ahead of their arrival so was holding my breath that this would be good. It was fantastic. It was very moist. We even added a bit of whipped cream on top and served it as dessert. My husband suggested it would be nice if I made this again....very soon. Definitely will!"

"This recipe was my grandma's standby, only change she did was instead of sour cream, she used 1 cup sour milk ( almost a cup of skim milk with a little lemon juice added to sour it). Everyone loves this recipe, the original way and grandma's way!!"
