"My mother told me one evening she needed a dessert for a meeting at church the next morning, after checking out what was in my cupboard, I found this recipe on this website, I added more pecans. It was a great hit at the meeting, all the ladies were asking my Mom for the recipe. I will definitely make it again, I may try it with an orange cake mix and mandarin oranges and the pineapple."
