This is a family favorite that my mother used to make and now I've been making for years. I usually make 1 1/2 recipes of this and bake it in a 9x13 pan. We also spread the frosting on the cake right out of the oven and then broil it till bubbly. Delicious!
I have been baking this cake for many years but instead of baking powder I use 1 tsp. baking soda. Also the icing should be heated for about 3 min. then poured over the cake as soon as it is finished baking, then return cake to oven for 5 minutes. It's a great treat.
This recipe is FABULOUS and has been around for many, many, many years!!!...Actually, one of MY childhood favorites that I passed on to my own family! ~This cake also tastes Great iced with a white butter icing topped with crushed pecans....
i'm over 50 and this is the VERY FIRST cake I ever made (I was 5) and it was with my Grandma Bessie in DeQueen Arkansas!!! i have two granddaughters that live with me, that love to cook and bake and I can't wait to make this with them very, very soon. I'm so happy to have found the recipe - THANK YOU!!! (I actually don't remember making it with coconut but I love coconut and Grandma was simple in her baking pleasures and very, very frugal (from the depression era, ya' know so I doubt she ever bought coconut! Fortunate, I love coconut and will certainly follow this recipe!)
This recipe is a keeper, the only thing I changed due to the fact I had no heavy cream, I used whipping cream instead. Cake is very moist and fluffy.
