Rocky Mount Cake
Search Request from Visitors to Old Recipe Detective Blog or Heritage Recipes

The Request: “I am trying to find a recipe for a rocky mount cake. My husband's
family is from NC / VA area and he remembers this cake as a child. All of his older family members are deceased and we cannot find a recipe. We know the filling has nuts at least two kinds and coconut. It was apparently baked during the holidays. I would love to be able to bake one for him this year. We live in AL now and I have not been able to locate a recipe. Thank you!”

Follow-up: “Thank you very much for the recipe. We baked it for Christmas and my husband said it is just as he remembers, Betty”
