    My mom made this cake when I was growing up. It s fantastic! I pinned a similar looking cake awhile back that had a butter sauce poured over it. Instead of water, it was made with butter, sugar and white wine! I ve yet to try it, but it sounds interesting. Lemon, rum or different liqueurs would be great! ok .I m confused. How do you eat the cake a day in advance and find it s moist after it sits overnight? A day in advance would mean you eat it before it s even made. Makes me wonder how wrong the rest of the recipe is; especially after reading all the problems others are having with this cake. Maybe they should just eat it a day before they make it.
