This is not meant to be baked in a 9x9 pan, a 9x13 is more like it! Very good flavor!

I left off the pecans for my husband, but we all liked the cake. It is an excellent spice cake, but the topping was a little chewy.

This brings back wonderful memoryies of baking with my grandma when I was young. I don't have her recipe but this is exactly like the one she made right down to the frosting, we must have doubled ther recipe as we always made a 9x13, It is easy, moist,dense and flavorful. Thanks for sharing, I can't wait to make it for my family.

This is an old fashioned cake. When I was growing up we called it "Lazy Dazy Cake". I always double the broiled on frosting ingredients. I'm glad to have found the recipe for this sentimental favorite!

My family has been making this cake for years. After icing put cake under broiler to brown coconut.

This is one of my favorite recipes. I recommend broiling the topping however and have even omitted the nuts on occasion when I didn't have them on hand. My recipe calls for 1 1/4c boiling water to 1c oatmeal and letting it sit for 20 minutes. The topping is 1/2 c butter, 1/2 c brown sugar, 4TBS milk, 1c coconut.

A good cake recipe, but the topping on mine all went to the sides of the pan! When I took it out the sides of the cake had a jelly-ish coating from the icing mixture. It tasted nice, but it wasn't what I was expecting.

good, but not a big seller at my house because of the pecans in the icing. The cake was moist and stayed that way for a long time. Very spicy and good. Great fall cake. 11/2007
