    This is similar to the recipe that I got from my MIL but not the same. I also add coconut. It's the easiest cake to make and great for taking to potluck lunches!

    I think it cooks for about 50 minutes in a 13x9 pan. I made it for the annual family picnic at the end of July per my older sister's request! :-)

    So, there is no oil or margarine in it? I can call it "diet" right.

    Lol, as long as you don't put the icing on it.
