    Old widow's Note:

    My mother made this all the time when we were growing up. It is very sweet so a little goes a long way. Not a pretty cake but oh so good and easy to prepare. I have frozen this in precut squares and popped in the microwave for a sweet warm treat.

      I made a small mistake and forgot to add coconut to the batter. My peeps wouldn't ban me for that. I'm the only one who knows how to work the kitchen. Delicious!

      Yum! We loved this cake -- yes, it is quite sweet but that's the way my husband and son like their dessert. I don't think the cake is an "Ugly Duckling" at all. I did serve it with a sliced strawberry on top of each piece, but even without it the cake still looked nice. The only thing I would change is to next time combine the batter by hand and then use the mixer for only a few seconds so that there will be some chunks of the fruit left in the batter. I'll be making this again -- it's really good!
