Personal Notes:
Nan Moses was John Wienges' great aunt. As kids, we would go to her house on Dantzler Street. I remember this chocolate pound cake as being the most wonderful cake in the world. She also had a dalmatian dog.....no one in St. Matthews had dalmatians! Weird what you remember as a child from a small town!
