Leah's Story

This recipe comes from my husband's sweet grandma (Moma Chloe). She made everything with love and a smile! This cake is very moist and freezes well.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
With no icing, this cake is so darn easy to transport... which is good since you'll be getting requests for it from all corners! It's sweet and fruity with a healthy hint of cinnamon.

Judy, I don't know about peaches, seems like they would break down when mixing. I don't sub anything in this recipe.
Rita, you can just leave coconut out I guess, probably just won't me as moist.
There are a ton of comment where people have added, deleted or substituted ingredients in this recipe. You may look back and see what they discovered. I don't why though because it is so good the way it is! haha
