Thanks to Nancya for the WhiteHouse Cookbook recipe. And thank you Monstagrrrl, for the suggestion of the Epicurious web-page for the Jiffy cake.
After much searching, I happened onto the www.virtualcities.com
site, and found a wonderful recipe there. Only thing I changed was the recipe for the frosting. I didn't want a cream cheese type frosting. The cake I remembered had a light fluffy frosting. So, I used 3 beaten egg whites, and 1 cup heavy cream. Then I mixed in I think two cups of powdered sugar. I added vanilla, and 1/4 cup chopped black walunts to finish. I sprinkled in about 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. It turned out great. I was so thrilled, and I got raves on the cake. I did refrigerate it though, because of the light frosting. It was very delicate. Finally, I found the recipe I was looking for. But, I plan on trying the White House recipe just for grins. Thank you so much for the input. PJ :D
