Personal Notes:
This cake is in memory of my grandma, Oma Kansas Maze-Johnson. Grandma gave me this recipe years ago. Grandma loved her sweets, so I guess we all came by that honostly. She and I sat at the table talking many time while enjoying a piece of cake, or anything else that was in front of us. What I wouldn't give to be able to sit down and talk to her again. I have a lot of questions I would like to ask her that I never thought of while she was still here. She would have loved the fact that we are making a cookbook with all of our family favorites.
