GREAT recipe. Very easy to follow. End product is DELICIOUS! My whole family liked this one. I used 2 cups chopped kumquats and walnuts. I also frosted with cream cheese frosting with coconut sprinkled on top. As the others said, very much like carrot cake. Tasty. Thanks for sharing.

I used Splenda to cut the calories back a little, but otherwise followed the recipe. It was time consuming to chop the kumquats since they are so small to begin with, but it was worth it! This was like a tropical version of a carrot cake...moist and fabulous!

This has become one of our family favorites! I used fresh pineapple and drizzled powdered sugar mixed with fresh lemon juice on top and finally coated it with coconut.
