“Yummmmy yummmmy in my tummmmy cake !!!!!!! My mom-in-law, finally gave this recipe to me in 1968, after every weekend out at the cottage, I would eat it all up, and leave nothing for them to take home. There's always a new way to get their prized recipes.......375 degrees oven 45 minutes, remove poke holes place on filling and return to 375 degrees oven last 15 minutes, 9 1/2 cup greased and floured tube pan. Remember also if you use a bundt pan they have a tendency to cook faster, and if not careful could result in a drier cake. Also I like to make the holes for the topping with the handle of a wooden spoon that way everything goes into the cake a little better, leaving only a slight amount on top.”
