“I've had this recipe for nearly 15 years. I thought I lost it today (!) therefore publishing on so I'll have it forever. I love it because it's moist and not dry like other recipes. It calls for margarine but I use softened butter instead. And I always seem to bake it for longer than the recipe recommends.”
