    Excellent! My mom use to make this back in the 60's. It's a classic.  -  25 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I first tried this recipe back in the late 1960s, but lost the recipe. It came back when I saw "Steel Magnolias" as the Cup-a Cup-a Cake. I made it without the egg. And like the movie, I always serve it with good vanilla ice cream, just to cut the sugar! Simple to make for a last minute dessert, guests think you created a master piece.....and you did!  -  09 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
