Down-South Amalgamation Cake

This is a classic among old-fashioned cake recipes. The Down-South Amalgamation Cake is a southern dessert tradition that stands the test of time. Coconut, raisins, pecans, walnuts--this cake has everything but the kitchen sink!

  • 1 (18.25-ounce) box white cake mix
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 cups walnuts, chopped
  • 2 cups pecans, chopped
  • 1 (16-ounce) box raisins
  • 1 (14-ounce) package flaked coconut
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 2 egg whites


  1. Bake white cake mix, following package directions, in two layers (either 8 or 9 inch).
  2. In a double boiler, combine egg yolks, flour, 2 cups sugar, and butter. Cook, stirring, until thick. Add walnuts, pecans, raisins, and coconut. Mix well.
  3. Spread filling between layers, on sides and top of cooled cake.
  4. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan; stir until well blended. Boil slowly without stirring until mixture will spin a long thread when a little is dropped from a spoon (hold spoon high above saucepan), or until it reaches 238-242 degrees F.
  5. In a large bowl, beat egg whites with a mixer until they are stiff, but still moist. Pour hot syrup slowly over egg whites while beating. Continue until mixture is very fluffy and will hold its shape. Spread over cake.

I have not made this YET but it sounds similar to a Lane Cake which is delicious. Going to try.

I'll bet this is an expensive cake to make...and who knows how it will come out, tasty and good or a complete flop.
