MOCHA WHIPPING CREAM CAKE -COCONUT PECAN Frosting

This is an original plain, but good cake from my Indiana mother-in-law Nellie,and her Womans World Cookbook 1961.
It has served many, many parties over the years.
Usually just powdered sugar and served with her churned home-made ice cream.
My version I tweaked to make a "Mocha Whipping Creamed Cake" in a 9x13 cake pan, and then covered it with canned Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy Coconut Pecan Frosting.
This is a very delicate tasting mocha cake with a delicious topping! YUM!!
Please enjoy.
