    I thought this was very good and pretty easy . . .but I didn't do the last frosting topping; it just seemed sweet enough already. Hubs agreed with me and does seem to like the cake. I had to bake longer; about 15 minutes longer, but ended up with a nice coffee type cake that has good flavors, fruit, and plenty of sweetness. I agree; this would be a good cake to take to a potluck. thanks for the recipe!  -  22 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    My 10 year old daughter made this for a potluck dinner at church. Everyone loved it! It was very easy for her to make the cake. I made the boiled icing to go on top. This topping tastes like german chocolate cake icing without the nuts. The cake is very moist, and freezes well. We didn't change a thing.  -  17 Nov 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
