  • This is a great easy cake recipe to make ahead and keep in the freezer for those unexpected times when you need to serve something sweet. You can even slice it ahead so you can remove the slices individually as you need them. Just wrap it well in plastic wrap before you place it in a freezer bag and it will keep for a couple of months.

Did You Know?…

The recipe calls for the addition of either nuts, raisins or coconut. I think that shaved or grated coconut is the perfect addition for this cake, sort of like a pina colada, cake style.

This cake is made in the style of quick breads, but is lighter and more of a real cake texture.

It is a perfect cake to make ahead and place in the freezer in case of unexpected company.

The only thing is, it’s so good you will have to make two if you want to freeze one, as the first one will certainly be eaten!
