This cake is awesome! I did followed the suggestions of half brown/half white sugar and 1 cup oil. I think i will try apple sauce and add coconut flakes as others have suggested next time.

This is very similar to a hummingbird layer cake my aunt makes. Since this is made in the sheet cake pan, it's much easier. I frosted the top with cream cheese icing. My family loved it.

I would cut back on the oil next time to reduce the fat count. Overall it was a really excellent bread!

Excellent!! Just as tasty with walnuts. Sooo moist...for days! Can't wait to make again and indulge in this tasty delight.
