I've been baking this cake for 30 years, but somehow I've never shared the recipe with you here. It's about time! This cake is a timeless classic, and anyone who tastes it instantly loves it. Perfect to make for a carnival cake walk, or bake sale, or pot luck dessert table. You can make it as bundt cake or in a 9 x 13 pan.

Plan on bringing copies of the recipe with you when you bring it along. you'll be asked for it.

Jan's Tip: The original Recipe did not call for any glaze topping at all. It is fine without it, but a powdered sugar glaze is a wonderful addition to the cake. I love to melt the remaining butterscotch chips into the glaze and turn it into a butterscotch glaze. Our Grandmother's ButterRum Sauce recipe would be perfect to serve over the cake too! but you certainly have options!

I usually make this cake right after we return from apple picking at our favorite orchard. Our husband's family has been picking there for over 40 years at least so we take it very seriously this apple picking tradition!
