We couldn't wait until Mom sliced this old-fashioned cake with its caramel-like frosting, loaded with chewy coconut. Even after one of Mom's delicious meals, one piece of this cake wasn't enough. -Darlis Wilfer, Phelps, Wisconsin

This is one of my favorite cakes. I don't think I have ever come across anyone that didn't love it.

MY REVIEW

This yummy cake is a huge hit at my Church coffee hour. It has a very "old fashioned" taste to it, I think because of the hot milk. Do not be afraid to make this cake, it is super easy and the results are fool-proof, just don't over broil the topping.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 23, 2011

My husband's mother used to make this cake for him when he was little, so I was a little nervous when I tried this recipe. But he said that this was not only great, but better than his mother's cake.

This is a family favorite for not only my "old" husband, but my kids and grandchildren as well.

Just a little "putzy", but well worth the effort.

Great dessert to impress company
