    Guava Girl's Note:

    I got this recipe from a friend who served it on New Year's Eve. It was so moist and tasty I had to share it. I can't remember why she said it was called "Elvis Presley" cake. If you know, please let me know. Anyway, it is very easy and very good.

      Guava girl: this is a fab recipe have used it over and over for years. It was called the Elvis Presley cake because it was the one he asked for most often. His grandmother made it for him. I always think back fondly to Elvis as I eat/ bake this.

      My husband thought this was a silly cake when I baked it for a party. But, after the first bite he was trying to get everyone to eat another dessert so that he could take this one home for himself. Didn't work though, it was gone in a flash.

      I made this cake yesterday from Country Cook and it had all the same ingredients, except that you use 3 cups of confectioners sugar in the frosting instead of 2, as stated in this recipe. The cake was moist and delicious! I will be making this again in the future!!!
