This recipe was originated by one of my mom's friends, who made it totally from scratch one night at a homeless shelter, when they ran out of ingredients. They used whatever they had. It was served, and the people loved it! This recipe has been passed around ever since! It's a delicious cake that people go ga-ga over! It's best when made the day before. Frost with whipped topping and serve with fresh fruit.
