    A co-worker recently made a version of this for our Christmas party and it was VERY good. I found this recipe in the "King's Daughters Hospital Centennial Cookbook".

      Great cake. Made it for my son's birthday gathering this summer and it was perfect. Everyone enjoyed it!

      I made this for a church catering job so I didn't get to taste the completed cake but wanted to at least comment on the recipe. It was very easy to make and I liked the addition of cinnamon in the batter which was different from other recipes. The icing was very tasty and also very easy. I didn't use a mixer for the icing just mixed the sugar in with a spoon. Left out the nuts. Thanks for the recipe! -Nov 14, 2005. Update: I finally had a chance to make this again, this time for a co-worker's birthday. I used a whisk to mix the icing by hand (instead of the spoon I used last time). This was awesome with vanilla bean ice cream and it got many many compliments by my co-workers. I will definitely be making it again as it was so simple to make and tasty to boot! Thanks again for the recipe!

      I have made this twice now and everyone loves it. It reminds me of the cake a friend of my moms used to make that I loved so much as a little girl. Thank you.
