Notes

It's gotta be magic when you dump a cup of boiling water over the top of your ingredients right before baking - and it turns into cake.

This recipe came from Mrs.George. She & my Mother were very good friends while we lived in Ill. Mr. & Mrs. George later moved to West Tennessee, where they both died.
