    I'm saved this to try. After reading the recipe and all of the comments, I have to taste this. I simply must.

    And so a new mission begins...

    Thanks, Nancy and Vivian!

    Nope, Roslyn as in Roslyn, NY on Long Island which is where we were living when my mother got this recipe in an adult education course for baking.
    I hope you enjoy it.

    June - we always loved this one, too. I am so thrilled that with Vivian's tweaks it is back in my repertoire. Moist and light, just as I remembered. it's funny, the aroma in the house took me back more than 30 years in a very nice way, too. I hope your family enjoys it, too.

    Thank you Ladies!
    It was a joy to make and very very tasty. I have made this cake before but with a different amount of ingredients, so I tried Borinda's recipe with her measurements but with a slightly different technic.
