This was so good. Just like Mom used to make when I was a kid many, many years ago.
Exactly like the recipe I used to have that got lost in a move. I was thrilled to find it here on zaar. This is a delicious cake. The coconut frosting is what sets it apart. Thanks for posting...this one is like a trip to Grandma's house!
Bless you! This cake is so moist and the flavor can't be beat. I hadn't thought about this cake for many years and was overjoyed to see it here. I will be making it for a very special birthday and can't wait to see everyone's reaction. Something I remember that is a little different is to use a handfull of black walnuts to the mix and also in the topping to make to flavor stand out.
