I got this recipe about 22 years ago when I was in girl scouts. We had to learn to bake something to earn a badge. I don't know if I actually earned the badge or not because I wasn't actually in girl scouts for very long.
I'm not sure why this recipe is called a cake. It is more like the yummy crumbly corn bread you make homemade minus the cornmeal. It is a sweet treat that is more of a side dish than a dessert. My kids seem to think they always need a dessert or treat around the house. It doesn't hurt that I LOVE to bake just about anything. The taste of this recipe also reminds me a lot of one of my favorite muffin recipes that I will share later on.
