      Delicious cake! I made this in a 9x13 pan instead of making a double layer cake and just baked it a little longer. We didn't even frost this because it was so moist you could eat it as is. However, a Cream Cheese frosting would be really good with this. Will definitely make this again. Thanks Teresa!

      I love this cake. It is an unbelievable scratch cake. I used 3 c. self-rising flour and omitted the baking soda. Also, not crazy about nuts so I substituted some coconut and it was scrumptious. I made Wilton's Buttercream frosting as I was out of cream cheese. This cake is superb.

      I love the flavor of this cake but do not try to make it as a layer cake because it is too heavy and dense. The layers want to collapse. Other than that, the cake is so moist and tasty!
