Yum Yum Birthday Cake

My one & only son just celebrated his 43RD birthday last week. Boy, it's hard to get that number to roll off my tongue. How on earth did my child reach 43 already?? It seems like I should still be 43. Oh well, I'm going to take a little turn on my postings while I figure out what in the heck I'm doing.
My son has requested this same birthday cake for at least 20+ years now. It is a wonderful cake & so easy to prepare. I got this recipe from a co-worker some 30 years ago. The name is debatable but I didn't select that. I am going to post a couple of more Christmas recipes in the near future that have been a part of our family for many years.
Have a great day!
