Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My Grandma Carson had this cake on hand at all times. She didn’t have a written recipe so in 1950 my cousin JoAnn measured each ingredient while Grandma made the cake. A family favorite. My aunts, uncles and cousins all loved this cake.

It sounds like way too much spice and you can cut it down, but I love it just the way Grandma made it.
