When cool sprinkle with powdered sugar.

This recipe is from my girl Sandra!  Lov that chic!  I wanted to make this cake for hubby's birthday and asked her for the recipe.  Now the thing about my friend is that she ad libs her recipes, a little of this, a little of that...
That makes it difficult to duplicate the taste, so I begged for just the recipe and she came through.  Everyone enjoyed it last night.  After the kids ate it I said, "Guess what is in here?"  in a sweet, sing-songy kinda way.  My oldest heavily sighs and says, "MOM, WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PUT GREEN VEGES IN ALL OUR FOOD???"   Well, because I am a mom, nough' said!

Enjoy your family,
E.W.
