“A former neighbor of mine & I were trying out recipes from some newly acquired military community cookbooks we had "won" together on Ebay. My neighbor found this recipe in one called "Recipes on Parade:Desserts" and since we both had a copy of the cookbook, we both tried it out - and loved the recipe. You would serve this scooped into a bowl, garnished with a little shredded cheddar and whipped cream, or as my neighbor preferred, some vanilla ice cream. This tastes best warm. This is called a "cake" but is not a typical slicing cake.”
