This is my best friends recipe, Pat Sherer. She coordinates calling and cooking when her church family needs to take food. This is one of her most requested recipes. She has been my friend since she was thirteen and now we are both grandmothers. I am the sister she never had. We are real close and I love her very much. We could take a week long vacation and never get on each others nerves. I never feel like I have to entertain her and she treats me the same. That kind of good friend is hard to find.

This sounds very much like a cake my mom makes, but she doesn't put nuts in the icing. One of my all time favorites! It's very moist and oh so delicious!

Vivian and Renee, hi you sweet ladies. Tomorrow is my sister's birthday and I'm planning to make this cake for her. I think I will use Black Walnuts. She has a tree and yesterday my husband cracked a pan full and I picked them out. I was going to make it today but after my trip to the grocery store I was too tired. I'm also going to put some coconut in the batter, maybe 1/2 cup and I'll grind it in the food processor a couple of rounds first. It's hard for me to digest Coconut but I love it so I just make it a little finer. JJ

I've been making this cake for the past 25 yrs. My mom gave me the recipe and she passed the next yr. This is my brother's favorite cake. I don't use the nuts as I can no longer eat them.
