Personal Notes:
One of my grandmothers best recipes from the depression when certain food items were hard to find. It is very flexible recipe, to be made with whatever is on hand. It can be dressed up or down, and if you don't tell, no one will be able to guess the secret ingredient. This makes a delicious moist "bread" style spice cake. The spices can be increased/decreased to personal taste. Keeps well, and freezes great.
