I am a baker in Los Angeles and I make this cake for my customers and they just love it. If you don't grease the pan properly it will stick so that is most important. When I make it I alternate the flavors. I use vanilla, Maple, banana, coconut and butter. Or I use butter, lemon, vanilla, almond and coconut. Thanks for this recipe!!

This recipe is a family & friends favorite. Every gathering, being holiday or not, this is the most asked for dessert. Hint......beat eggs seperately for at least 3 mintues before adding too your butter, shortening and sugar....a must have.
