This is a recipe from my mom's book of old recipes. I am not sure if it was originally modified from elsewhere but my grandmother was a baker so I can assume she had some input! It is incrediblly easy and delicious. I usually make a simple buttercream icing with the cake but I am sure a cappucino icing would be great too! —alexmr
