I made this today. It took 65 min. in my oven but was well worth the wait. I've already scarfed down a third of it on my own.

That recipe is so old - and in those days - there were no thermostats on the ovens - so who knew the ptemp to begin with - I am glad you enjoyed it!

Mama, don't know how I missed this recipe. But I did . Have it copied now. Loaf cakes are so good. with a glaze or just with lots of butter while still warm. Thanks for the recipe.CF:)

You're very welcomed - I love butter on cakes - but then again - us oldsters would understand that - the kids today don't know what they are missing.
