This is called War Cake because it was made in Canada during WW2 and was shipped out to the troops serving overseas. My grandmother used to make this cake and let it sit for at least a week before slicing into it. But, this recipe I found in a local fundraising cookbook, calls for it sitting for only one day before slicing it up. Just as yummy as grandmas.
