Families are singing praises for this special Preacher Cake


Beyond tasting good, sometimes the most important thing about a recipe is the memories behind it.

Home cook Susan Swanson remembers her father making this cake often for company outings and potlucks. He said it was easy to remember the ingredients because there were two of almost everything!

While this sweet, nutty, moist cake is delicious, it’s probably the memories of her father that keep Susan coming back for more.
