The recipe is from Fannie Farmer Cookbook (1972 edition). It is a buttery dense cake. I have been making it for years. My family loves this cake. My daughter is especially fond of the ends. I have made it to serve plain or as an ice cream cake topped with a frozen fruit mixture. You must use an electric mixer to get the batter light and fluffy.
