Poor Man's Cake I
March 31, 2007

My husband's grandmother made a cake he loved called "yum-yum" cake. Unfortunately, no one in the family had the recipe so when Grandma passed away - about 15 years ago - the recipe was lost. I tried for years to recreate the taste without success. But now I can! Since we are cutting back on desserts, I do find this rather sweet so I will experiment with that. Grandma also added ginger brandy to the recipe (at least she said she that was why she wanted it), and chopped walnuts. Thanks for this recipe!
