I found this cake in an old church cookbook. Its a novelty cake well worth serving to both delight and mystify your friends. Most will guess the secret ingredient to be coconut. I will follow with the frosting recipe and the frosting is tart-sweet and very important to the cake.I thought this might be fun to fool everybody during the Holidays. The cake is very good. So enjoy.
