Our son David died 8 years ago at the age of 26 of Leukemia, this cake was one of the only things that he could eat because of soreness of the mouth, I baked at least one a week and took it to the hospital. Today I got a call from our daughter who recieved her Ph.D. in 2002 and is now entering her 3rd year of Law School at Loyola in New Orleans, she called to wish me a "Happy Mothers Day", also she and her boyfriend are arriving next Wednesday to visit, she asked me if I would make "David's" favorite cake for when they are here.
I can't remember how many years I have been making this cake but at least 12.
Today with my daughters call brought back special memories of your wonderful recipe.
