Preacher’s Cake

The cake is served with a cream cheese frosting which makes for a totally irresistible combination. I have provided my own cream cheese frosting recipe, but feel free to use your own if you have one that you enjoy. This cake will not rise very much, so it will be very easy for you to add your frosting evenly. Once you start eating this cake, you will find it hard to pull yourself away from the table…
