  • This is almost exactly like my mother's recipe!! We halve the margarine in the cake and double it in the frosting. Just made it today by special request for my daughter's birthday treats at school. It's the BEST! SO rich and moist, and can be cut into tiny servings if you want. - 3/22/13

  • I make this since it is quick and fail proof but do not frost and just dust with powdered sugar. Super moist. - 8/1/10

  • This is just about identical to one my mother-in-law introduced me to years ago, and it's been a family favorite ever since! We add nuts to part of the icing and leave part plain for non-nut-lovers. - 7/14/09
