Notes

This recipe was posted many years ago on our local newspaper. It is a tried & true recipe for me. I have been baking this cake for several years for Thanksgivings. It has a moist texture and the caramel glaze makes it extra delicious. It is my husband's favorite cake.

A dash of local for every season
