    My whole family loves this cake, they even request it for birthdays etc.! I top the cake with coconut before baking and add a tsp. of cinnamon to the batter for extra flavor. This is my favorite cake to make and eat.  -  25 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made a few changes, I used applesauce in place of oil and used half brown sugar and half white sugar as previously suggested. I am not sure if the changes changed the texture...the texture was somewhat fudgy(?) definitely not cake-like. I also greased my pan and dusted it with cinammon and sugar. Yummy! Yummy! My husband did not want me to share any with my coworkers....  -  22 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have made this a few times now, and it is always a hit. I followed some of the previous suggestions and put half brown sugar and half white sugar. I also added cinnamon and cut back the oil. This cake is always better the next day! Definitely a keeper!!!  -  28 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
