This is an old fashion ,traditional dessert in the South. It apparently has been around for many years. One can add just about anything in this cake , and it will stand out as a big winner. It takes many steps and patience, but the wait is worth it. This is not an original recipe but I have made some changes.

    Wow! This sounds wonderful, thanks for sharing. I'm glad Ms. Nancy C. from the group "Loads of Loaves of Bread" asked about it.
