“This recipe has been in my family forever. I grew up on it and has always been my favorite. It came from the time when eggs were not readily available. People are put off by the idea of "salad dressing" or Miracle Whip in a cake, but it is so moist and delicious! I tend to make this in two 9" round pans.”
