2008 Found us in a our current residence and I was making Thanksgiving Dinner for my parents and my mother-in-law. I went all Rachael Ray with my recipes and we had a great meal. My mother-in-law showed up with this cake. A CAKE! Who brings a cake to Thanksgiving? This is the holiday where pies rule. . until you taste this cake! Think crustless pumpkin pie with a crumb topping made with CAKE MIX! Another thing I don't typically use! This was utterly delicious. A couple of notes, my mother-in-law was terrible about organizing things. Her estate was filled with bags, boxes, and piles of recipes from magazines, newspapers, and on handwritten pieces of paper. We had asked her for the cake recipe and she couldn't find it. I did find it while sorting through mountains of recipes and a picture of Mary Jane Buck with her son, Tommy taken in 1964. The recipe came from Mary Jane and we are glad to have located it and passed it down this year. It stole the show. It is seriously good and easy to make--so easy a child could do it!
