Recipe with no name - turns out the back side is the fun part

This is the second recipe I've come across in my Grandma's recipe boxes that didn't have a name. The last one turned out to be corn bread.  It's hard to explain why or how I came across this one,  I wasn't really looking for a cake recipe or anything sweet (Bubba and I are getting a little burned out on all the sweet stuff) but for some reason I pulled this one out..read it, read it again...realized I didn't know what it was and decided to see what was on the other side...and there in lies the magic.  Keep in mind...I am sitting in my living room, surrounded by Christmas cards that we have received, Christmas cards that need mailed, stocking stuffers that need packed for the upcoming trip and I am looking at recipes, only to find "on the other side", the words to that popular Christmas carol "Up on the Roof Top".  Remember now, I have 7 different recipe boxes that I could be looking at, on this day, I pick this one.  I say "devine" intervention...my Grandma, who loved Christmas knew I needed to have a little more Christmas spirit and that a good ole carol like this one might do the trick!  So, in case you don't remember the lyrics...here they are...(Recipe Style - 1st verse only).

Up on the Roof Top
Up on the house tops reindeer pause
Out jumps good old Santa Clause
Down thru the Chimney with lots of toys
All for the little one's Christmas joys
Ho Ho Ho Who wouldn't go
Ho Ho Ho Who wouldn't go
Up on the house top Click Click Click
Down thru the chimney with Good St. Nick

In case you are wondering about the recipe...I am enclosing it too.  I really don't know what this is..looks like it might be for Angel food cake...I didn't make it today...will have to try it some other time...
