My mom writes, "Because it is so easy to make, this cake is the first cake that we learned how to bake. I still remember that Thursday afternoon in the Fall of 1967 when Mamy showed me how to make this cake. It is perfect for a nice afternoon snack."
As for me, I too love how easy it is to make and uses yogurt instead of butter. I also always have all these ingredient laying around so I never have to go to the store if I really want cake! It's a good substitute for shortcake as well.
