The Dream Cake from the “Mennonite Community Cookbook” is a slice of tradition. From the tender bottom layer to the heavenly top, every element plays a role in creating a confection that’s worthy of its name.
These delicious bites are chewy and sweet. If you overbake them they become hard, but for some reason that didn’t bother me. They taste very good with a cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk.
