Food for the Angels
My mom was an extraordinary baker. I can remember as a very young child being in the kitchen with her and getting my own hunk of pie crust dough to play with. She had the patience of a saint when it came to teaching me how to bake. I don't know where she got this recipe, but it was one of her favorite cakes to make. She has been gone for almost 6 years and there isn't a day that goes by when I don't miss her. I followed in her footsteps though and find it relaxing and rewarding to bake just about anything.

Optional: 1/2 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9 inch by 9 inch baking pan.

Pour into prepared pan and smooth top. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely in pan on a cake rack.

Frosting: Beat whipping cream until stiff peaks. Spread on top of cake and refrigerate over night. (May sprinkle coconut on top of whipped cream if desired, and then refrigerate.)
