Macaroon Cake Recipe

Try this gooey and delicious Macaroon Cake!!

My Mother-In-Law used to make this Macaroon Cake Recipe, and it was my husband’s favorite cake recipe from his early childhood.  The first time I made it I was so worried that I wouldn’t live up to his mom’s baking, but he gave me his approval.  This cake is made in a 13 x 9 pan to get full effect.
