| This family recipe for devils food cake dates back to at least the fifties, maybe even a couple of decades before that! |
Aunt Ilene was Aletha's Mom’s youngest sister. (And where Aletha's middle name comes from). She died in her early thirties of cancer. Aletha was only three or four at the time, but she can remember her.
Aletha doesn’t know if Aunt Ilene made up this recipe, but it was always referred to as hers. Now it's yours, too.
