My grandmother used to make this cake for my dad and his brothers when they were growing up. On Dad's 75th birthday, I found this recipe and made it for him. The smile on his face went from ear-to-ear and he said that the cake was as good as he remembered. My mom complimented me immediately on making the 7-Minute Frosting. She knew what it was just from looking at the cake.
When my grandmother made this cake using egg yolks, she would also make an angel food cake to use the egg whites. One day I'll try that.
I now have to find a cake stand that will do justice to this beautiful cake.
Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe.
