I love this cake! I have made it for work a couple of times, and also baked it for my inlaws. To add a bit of an extra 'kick' and 'glamorize' it I poked a few holes in it while it was cooling and poured a tad of Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum and allowed it to soak in. Once cool, I layered it up and filled and coated it with Cream Cheese Frosting, Brown Decorative Sugar Crystals and Pecans. Delicious!
I have been making this recipe for years. It is a wonderful moist cake. I use cream cheese frosting. It is one of my husband's favorites.
Dont let the tomato soup turn you away fom this recipe. Very moist cake. It wont last long. I had a pregnancy craving for this cake. My mom used to make this cake when i was a kid.
