Personal Notes:
This is the first cake that I learned how to bake. I remember being turned loose in the kitchen to make it all by myself. Original recipe does not call for raisins or nuts, however raisins were always added to this cake and if nuts were available they were added as well. The frosting also was often added without the coconut or nuts. We often raffled off the corner pieces because they had the most brown sugar frosting.
This was a great snacking cake.
