This recipe if from the l930's. My Grandmother gave it to my Mother and she gave it to me. Now I am a grandmother and passed it down to my kids. It's really good. You don't have to dirty your mixer for this one, just a big bowl.

In about 1968, we moved next door to a family with seven little boys. Their mother gave me this recipe. It is really delicious. You can frost it, or just eat it like it is.

This cake is for those of you who have allergies. When my kids were small they developed an allergy against all dairy products, and then gradually outgrew them.
