Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This cake was a very popular cake during the 70s-80s. Plum was the most popular version during the time. Walnuts are generally suggested as the nut for the plum variation. A quarter cup of applesauce can be added to increase the moistness. Variations are to use one vanilla custard and one pear baby food, and use pecans.
