Personal Notes:
The story of this recipe is typical Big Katie! I shop in the Fresh Market in Ponte Vedra and one of the most delightful store staff is a woman named Glenda. She remembers Mom giving her this recipe years ago and it being the best cake ever. She hunted through her cookbooks and papers to find it so I could include it in this book. Mom never knew a stranger and she was unfailingly kind.
