Oh...I just love this cake recipe given to me by my great auntie! She used to make this cake for us every year for our family summer picnics and everyone always raved about how delicious it was.

Irish Rag Cake Ingredients

3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup butter, softened
6 large eggs
1 cup milk
3 cups all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, mix together all of the cake ingredients in the order that they are given. Lightly grease your 9x13" cake pan and bake your cake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until its done.

Ambrosia Icing Ingredients:

1 lb. flaked coconut
2 oranges, finely chopped up
1 orange rind, finely grated
1 cup sweet cream
1 large egg white, beaten well
1 cup confectioner's sugar (10X sugar)

Mix together all of your icing ingredients until smooth. Spread on top of your cool Irish Rag Cake.
