This recipe is from one of my roommates in Pensacola, and she made this cake all the time. It is really good – it never lasted long with at least 4 people living in the house at a time! It isn’t too sweet, so it also works as a breakfast treat :) She iced it with chocolate icing once to make a birthday cake, but I much prefer it plain. Yum!!
