Deneece's notes for this recipe:
I remember Nana making this when I was a kid, just found the recipe in my recipe shoe box but there is no name on it : ( So it becomes the No Name Cake. The ingredients may seem a bit odd, but the cake is wonderful! Hope you all give it a try. I am planning on making it when I am no longer sick!!

Sounds almost like a Cocacola cake... or a cross between that and a Rocky Road cake- Either way it sounds completely Yum
