“My mom used to make this for my brothers' birthday cake every year. I don't know where she got the recipe, she just bought the ingredients and made the cake. I make it for my husbands' birthday now. There are so many ways to tweak this, such as adding coconut or well drained chopped mandarin oranges, but this is our favorite.”
