    This is the cake my youngest son, Nick, asks for every year for his birthday! It is a really good, really easy recipe. The cake comes out very moist. He doesn't care for the coconut, so I use a little more of each of the nuts and raisins, and it is also very good with dried cranberries!!
    I love it!!
