Personal Notes:
This was everyone in the neighborhood's favorite birthday cake when I was growing up. It looks and tastes great! I actually haven't had it in years but I remember it fondly. I just realized this has raw egg in it. Better only do it with really fresh off the farm eggs - not store bought!
