A rich luscious filling for Lane cake. It's made with coconut, pecans, raisins and candied cherries.

Fantastic filling. It gets a little cumbersome stirring it but it's worth it in the end. I omitted the cherries and raisins and used it with a boxed lemon cake. It was outstanding! Read More

It was alright but not great. I also tried replacing the burbon with rum extract. DON'T DO THAT! It was AWFUL! And that's coming from someone who likes rum! Read More

I must of done something wrong. The sauce never thickened I stirred and stirred for at least half an hour in the end I decided to add some cornstarch but still stayed a bit runny I did not want to add too much of it. After it cooled the color changed from creamy to brown buttery like. I used it anyway because I found the taste pretty good. I dont think I will try this again too much work for poor results unless someone explains what I did wrong. Read More
