Personal Notes:
A version of this recipe was given to Jamie Stamper by her mother, Mary Ann Mallard, in 1986. Mary Ann made this cake for her husband, Jim, many years for his birthday. The cake was a favorite of Jim's father, James W. Mallard, Sr. Jamie modified the recipe to include both white and brown sugar, replaced the shortening with butter, and increased the spice quantity.
