This is a family recipe that has been around for over a century, passed down in the Kaelin family for generations. The story goes that the cake was made and left out on Christmas Eve for Santa to sample instead of the traditional cookies. My grandmother used to put it into a Christmas tree shaped pan, and then decorated it with green frosting and red licorice. I can be made in a loaf pan, regular cake pans, or a 9″ × 13″ glass baking pan. Make sure to butter and flour the pan. Be creative with your shape.
