Excellent, easy recipe! I halved the recipe, using an 8x8 and it was perfect. I did add vanilla and a bit of sour cream to the cake (old habit). Thank you for posting!

Love this. Same recipe my great grandma used to rave reviews. I didn't have whipping cream so used cream of coconut instead & added the toasted coconut. Excellent variation.

I substituted light ingredients.

This recipe can be divided in half as well. Use 1/2 for the coffeecake and the other half for a terrific pineapple upside down cake!

This is very similar to a cake from childhood memories, but even better, because of the cream instead of milk. The one Mother used to make also had coconut in the frosting. A really good cake.

As in the previous review, Mom almost always added coconut. This was a treat mostly on days when Mom did the ironing and didn't much extra time.

I am sooo glad that you posted this recipe which my Mother made when I was young. She also added a cup of coconut before broiling. What a yummy frosting!
