I've been making this recipe since 2004, and it has been my husband's de facto birthday cake (he insists) every year since. Anyone lucky enough to share the cake says it's the best they've ever had. I have never changed the ingredients for the cake, only the way I bake it: in two 8" round cake pans. I use frosting in between the layers, and additional coarsely ground pecans on the finished outer frosting (no need to make more than the recipe calls for). I've also made cupcakes, just as successfully, without changing a thing. Tammy Elliott, you are famous in my family even though we don't know you. This cake will never leave us!
