“This recipe is modified from one published in the Cedar Rapids Gazette back in the early 1990's. Like all "Cake-Mix" cakes, it is a breeze to prepare, but it looks and tastes like you labored in the kitchen for hours! It is lovely topped with either vanilla or cinnamon icing and goes great with a fresh cup of coffee. It also keeps very well.”
