My mother had a couple of really good whole wheat/healthy recipe books. I copied a few recipes from them years ago, and this was one of them. I apologize for not making note of the names of the books.

This was a favorite of mine, it’s very tasty and moist. In fact I usually don’t even make the icing it’s that good.
