Yo can make this as a round cake or as a loaf cake. The glaze is made with sugar, water, vanilla extract and chopped walnuts.
I used the recipe to make cupcakes - really nice! - 03 Oct 2011
Great cake! I just didn't like the glaze - I would definitely make this cake again, just using a powdered sugar glaze instead. Thanks for the recipe!! - 05 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is just like my grandmother's cake with a few exceptions - her recipe calls for crisco instead of butter, buttermilk in place of the milk, more coconut extract (a tablespoon), and no nuts in the glaze. Instead, you poke holes all in the cake with a toothpick and pour the glaze on top of the cake so that as much of the glaze as possible is absorbed into the cake instead of sitting on the botth of the dish - doing it this way makes the cake supermoist and flavorful!
