Brazil Nut Cake

Deanna Rodgers


I am not a big fan of your normal fruit cakes but this cake is really different and so very good. Brazil nuts are my favorite nut just to crack and eat at the holidays, so when I found this recipe I just had to try it. Well, it turned out so good that I have been making it for years now and it's a favorite with family and friends.
