It’s been over two years since I’ve made this cake! The last time I made this  I gave it to a boy for his birthday. That boy then proceeded to ask me out and then later married me. I always gave my mom a hard time about how this old family recipe ends with saying, “your hubby will love it!” But I guess I don’t have room to talk anymore, but I’m okay with that!

***Update. Another blogger tried this recipe. A couple days after she gave it to her boyfriend he asked her to marry him! I guess that cake really is that good! :)
