Recipe from family friend Diana Hudgins, June 1966. I’ve since learned from her daughter that the original came from Diana’s mother.

Can add a sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar to the top once baked.

I prefer this to a birthday cake as a celebration food. Also delicious with lime instead of lemon.
