Growing up this was a favorite for Sunday coffee in the winter. Coffee and cake is a traditional aspect of hygge, the Danish concept of living beautifully. As kids we had hot cocoa with real whipped cream instead of coffee.

I found this recipe in my others old recipe box and tried it out on my parents and sister for the third Sunday in advent this year. It's excellent, although my sister and I both remember it being a denser moister cake. We think the recipe we are remembering is our Aunt's but no one is sure where that recipe went.

The original recipe was in the Reporter Dispatch from White Plains, dated February 17, 1971.
