My grandmother made this cake for any holiday. My father and I loved it. I added a few ingredients to make it a little more moist. When I think of comfort foods, I think of this cake.

How to Make Granny's Peter Paul Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients for the cake, don't over mix. Pour into 3 round cake pans, that have been prepared with oil and flour. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees, depending on your oven.
  2. For the filling: In a saucepan stir sugar, marsh mellows and milk, until melted. Remove from heat, add coconut. Put a thick layer between the layers (Ice while cakes are still warm). Reserve the rest for the sides of the cake.
  3. In another saucepan bring butter, milk and cocoa to a boil. Add vanilla and powered sugar, mix well. Then add the nuts. Spread over the top of the cake quickly, it is very thick (like fudge). I let some fall down the sides too. Then spread the remaining coconut icing around the sides.
