Ronda Magnusson won two top prizes for this cake at the Iowa State Fair. Once you make it, you’ll find yourself making it again and again. It is outstanding!
It doesn’t need to be frosted. If you feel the need to give it a finishing touch, just shake powdered sugar lightly over the top. I sometimes warm it up before serving. Be sure to use cake flour. I’ve tried this with all-purpose flour, but that results in a heavy, gummy texture.
If this cake isn’t finished off in a day or two, wrap it snugly in plastic wrap and freeze it.
