I have eaten this cake for at least 50 years. My grandmother found the recipe in a magazine. I still have it, albeit it is really worn and falling apart. I make this cake for my family at least 4 times a year. We all love it!!!

My mother had the original 1959 bake off cookbook with this recipe. My mother made everything from scratch. Our birthdays were a special day and we got the cake we wanted. Coming from a family with 9 kids, this cake was requested by almost everyone of us as a favorite because it tastes so good. I would highly recommend it as the best cake ever.

The original recipe called for a seafoam frosting which was a cooked candy like frosting, not a whipped cream frosting. Why the change, I don't know. Maybe it's less sweet this way.

I made this cake a few time back in 1960s and we loved it. I was so happy to find the recipe again. Hope it works well at high altitude. I remember it was sooo good.
