Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I found this recipe in Papa's hand writing. He had beautiful penmanship even though his little finger was broken and stuck straight out!
I found the identical recipe from another source only it called for raisins instead of dates and used
3 T. of sour cream in the frosting instead of the hot water.
