This is probably my favorite cake in the whole wide world. I got this recipe from a Southern Living magazine, but lost it a year or so ago. I was so happy to find it again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I followed the recipe as written other then I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of Splenda brown sugar blend. I didn't make the icing either as I am not fond of icing on cakes. I liked this but no one else in the family was thrilled with it. I liked it for breakfast.

Wonderful cake. Very tasty with the coconut broiled frosting. Will replace the previous recipe I was using--this is much better.

I made this cake for my mother's birthday and she gave it five stars! I used 1 2/3 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/2 tsp of salt. It came out moist and very delicious!

I also have this recipe and always make it for our annual bake sale at church. It is the first cake to go, and people look forward to it every year.

I made this cake for a "moving party" this weekend. It was great and I got many requests for the recipe. Very moist cake, but as hubby said "the topping makes it". He isn't a sweet lover and had 3 peices!
