Hurricane Cake

This is a really moist dense cake.
I really don't know where the name came from, but the first time I had it was in rest here in Southern Florida. It might be the fact you frost a hot cake, and don't drain fruit, something you might do if you are in a big hurry!
It almost reminds me of bread pudding.
I asked around and found someone who had a recipe....and that was it!
