This cake brings back so many memories! During my teenage/early twenty years (last week...haha) I spent many summer weeks in California. While there, a dear, sweet lady from Oklahoma (Mumsie) taught me how to make this wonderful moist cake that literally melts in your mouth with each bite. The sugar crust gives it a good crunch when you are biting in to it, but then you get to the soft, yummy center...heaven! This cake is so easy; it only takes 7 minutes to prepare and 45 minutes to bake. You get a dessert that goes great with coffee, or a cold glass of sweet tea in under an hour. You can either use a box moist yellow cake mix, or you can make a homemade box yellow cake mix and just have it on hand for whenever you need it. I will include the recipe for the homemade box yellow cake mix just in case you want to try it (It will keep well in the pantry for months!) Remember, homemade is always Chewly Awesome!
