Been making this cake for years and we too call it "pig pickin cake". It's always a favorite.

This cake was amazingly good! We had it at our Father's Day celebration and there were no leftovers! It was refreshingly different and we will make this again and again! I loved it and so did the rest of my family (even the children)

COMMENT:
I have the same recipe...in North Carolina, we call it a "Pig Pickin' Cake". It's usually served at Pig Pickins'! Before I pour the remaing juice over the cake, I use wooden skewers to make holes in the cake, that way it goes right into the cake.
