I absolutely love this cake recipe it is so moist and easy to make. If you don't want to mess with the double cake pans just use a 9 by 13 pan and boom its done. I keep mine in frig after its cooled with saran wrap over it and it never seems to loose its moistness. My X-mother in law gave this recipe to me when I was a very young mother and my boys love it. I like the oatmeal icing instead of the coconut most cooks use.
