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.
This is a fabulous cake !! Very moist , and I just love the broiled coconut frosting ! It was easy to do and I had all the ingredients in my pantry ! I am gonna enjoy it to the very last crumb !!!
Tastes great. I did not have the ingredients for the topping so I did not make it, however the cake itself was just bliss. It was amazing!
A W E S O M E! I followed recipe exactly. I was unclear about the 8" pan. I assumed it was 8" square, but I couldn't find ours. I used 2-9" rounds for about 21-22 min at 350. I'm in Colorado's higher elevation. Split the topping between the 2 cakes and left in the pans to serve. Very moist. Thank you for sharing.
I was given a simular recipe by my best friends mom. My husband took over making it though. It has become one of his specialties. Instead of the icing he puts powdered suger on it. The only way our kids will eat oatmeal.
My mom passed this recipe on to me. She had been making it for years. Its very good and very easy. The only difference is that she uses 1 C coconut & 1 C chopped pecans in the topping. Excellent cake, a family favorite.
This is the best.I've been making it for years.
