This is my family’s go to recipe.  Whenever we need to make a quick recipe that is a big winner, this is it.  Just a few ingredients mixed up and thrown into a bundt pan.  All you have to do is not over cook it.  My daughter and I were going to sit Shiva, the Jewish custom of supporting the bereaved family, and did not want to arrive empty handed.  This whole recipe was completed in less than an hour.
