Honey Cake

I'm making a honey cake. The recipe, which follows, calls for 4 eggs but I had this photo of some eggs that I got from a neighbor. Her friend's chickens laid them and they were different colors. You might not see but there is pale greenish one as well as a white and a brown one. I just had to share this and it IS somewhat related to my recipe. I got this recipe a long time ago, which I know because the card it's written on is from way back, like maybe early 1970s. ha ha ha, that is WAY back, isn't it.
It tastes just like the one my grandmother made, which I only know because once my aunt tasted it and said "It's just like Ma's!" Ma's recipe was never written down so no one had it.

    The results were delicious. Just don't over bake or you'll dry out the cake. I did that with one of the loaves that was in the smaller of the two pans I had.
