This cake makes an appearance at almost every family holiday meal (with the exception of Passover, and that is simply because it's not kosher for Passover) - baked by my grandmother. Originally, years ago, my aunt copied over my great grandmother's handwritten and annotated recipes (what I would pay to see her originals!) and gave them to my mom, my grandmother, and my other aunt in a binder. When I make this cake, I always think about my great grandmother Rose, whom I called Nanny Rosie, whom I was lucky enough to know (and remember).
