Forgotten Amalgamation Cake is an old-fashioned recipe for a layered cake filled with coconut and raisins and topped with a homemade buttercream frosting. This southern classic is a tried-and-true dessert recipe that has stood the test of time. Amalgamation is "the action, process, or result of combining or uniting" and this cake certainly unites and combines an array of delicious flavors into a scrumptious homemade cake recipe. Amalgamation cake is similar to traditional Lane Cake, with the exception that this cake recipe does not contain liquor. Instead the layers of white sponge cake are filled with pecans (and the above mentioned raisins and coconut). Make this "forgotten" recipe today and it will surely become an heirloom recipe in your recipe box.
