Personal Notes:
This is the way that I remember watching MaMa make this cake while I was a little boy. She would often spoon some of the batter into a small cake pan and bake with her regular cake. She made this small cake just for me. I forgot to include this recipe in my first two editions but made sure to include in this one!
