This is a wonderful recipe, very very close to my mother's. Of course, that could in part be influenced by the soource - it is at least 50 years and specifies Wesson oil in the recipe. ;) But, what is most important is that it is delicious & easy.

This is an excellent recipe. Very moist and flavorful. It keeps its shape and moistness even after one week! I'm keeping this recipe as my "grandma's" recipe. My grandkids love it.
