This is a delicious, dense cake, and I loved it! I made a half version in a round 9" pan that I used cooking spray and parchment paper. The recipe called for a 320 oven temp which I've never seen. I set it at 350 but will definitely reduce it to 325 the next time because it was browning a little too early, and I had to take it out. I added a pinch of salt and did not use nuts at all. Just realized that I could have added coconut to the batter, but I forgot. I didn't matter though because when topping with the coconut, there's plenty of it. I followed Deb C's suggestion of using 1/4 of the frosting for one layer, and I still had some left, so that was a good call to cut back on it. Just what I needed...a taste of summer! Thanks Martha for the great recipe!
