Lane created her rich and delicious raisin, pecan and coconut confection in Alabama in the late century. It has been Scott Peacock's birthday cake since he was a child. The cake improves in flavor if you assemble it a week ahead.
This prize-winning cake is said to have originated in Alabama back in the and it's so good we still make Lane Cake today! Our recipe for Lane Cake still calls for all the basics: coconut, pecans, and raisins.
