Recipe of the Month: Harvey Wallbanger Cake

Harvey Wallbanger Cake

Eddie’s Note:

Growing up, as a special treat, my mother would make a Harvey Wallbanger Cake. Everyone (all nine kids) loved that cake, and looked forward to eating it – after we cleaned out dinner plates, of course. My mother turned 85 in January, and it was our turn to have it made as a special treat for her and all the friends and family gathered to celebrate. It was still a favorite of everyone at the event. I hope this becomes one of your family favorites, too.
