Note that there is NO coconut in this coconut cake recipe... is that because the icing is supposed to be coconut? I've never made a coconut cake before. My husband doesn't like coconut, I'm making this today purely for the kids. I'm pretty sure I just ice this in white icing, sprinkled with coconut?
Grammie Smith lived through the depression, and was always very frugal. I haven't looked too closely at all the recipes yet, but I will share them as I do. This one is mixing up in my kitchen right now. Lacking a functional "modern oven", I'll cook this in the crockpot roaster at 350 today. (My oven has been broken off and on all year, it's "off" currently) I've baked cakes in there before, it does a good job.
