Yours sounds similar to one that's been in my family for several generations. Look here for the recipe. Many times I've cut the recipe in half and cooked it in an 8- x 8-inch pan.

Your welcome UB. Since my Gram passed(the one I got the cast iron skillet from),family designated me to make "her" cake, cookies, and pickles because no one esle knows how. Glad I asked her to show me how to make them.
