Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This recipe brings back such great memories! I used to make a similar cake for my grandfather each year on his birthday. I would ice it and then coat it with coconut that I had colored red, in honor of his December birth. It was his absolute favorite... and this recipe tastes just like it to me! Fond memories of a great man and a great cake. Thanks, Cindy!

    It's good just cut and pour sweetened fruit over slices, top with fresh whipped cream and a dusting of powdered sugar.
