      Wow,wow,wow! This is one delicious cake! I made this for a Birthday celebration, but will add this to my catering menu, it's that good! I omitted the pecans, just because my Mom isn't a fan, but otherwise made it as stated. Terrific cake, and very easy to put together. Be sure to use the "instant" pudding it calls for, and not "cooked" pudding like I did the first time around! :)

      Ratherbeswimmin thanks for the great recipe! When I bake this cake, I can pretend I am the belle of the ball at a great Southern hoedown. This is my husband's favorite cake, but the rest of the family loves it too!! Tastes fancy but is really easy. I do modify the recipe a little. I bake the cake in a 9 by 13 pan. I sub juice from the mandarine oranges for the water. I use sugar free vanilla pudding and Cool Whip. No problem, regular or unleaded (sugarfree) this cake is delicious.
