    Kay00427's Note:

    This is a great old fashioned, made from scratch BUTTER cake. I made it for a family gathering and all of my aunts want the recipe. I think the secret is the coconut milk, found in many grocery stores Asian food section. It is a very heavy cake. I made it once with coconut milk and butter and another time with vegetable oil and regular milk. You cannot even compare the 2!

      This cake was a disappointment. The Frosting was Best I ever had , but the cake itself was to heavy, and not good at all. The batter was so heavy that I could not put into 3 cake pans ,as the recipe says. I will keep the frosting, but I have to find another cake batter.
