This is an original recipe that I created for the Herald-Mail cookie contest in 2008. It incorporates the traditional flavors of the season and is moist in texture. I was happy and pleased that it was chosen by the judges as one of the top recipes. — Courtesy of Linda Tantillo, member of Hagerstown Lioness Club.

Coconut cake takes top prize at Ag Expo photos: RIC DUGAN / staff photographer Mollie Spencer transformed an everyday yellow cake recipe into a grand champion by adding coconut and pecans. Mollie's Coconut Cake won top prize during the Washington County Ag Expo Saturday, Aug. 5, at Washington County Agricultural Education Center in Sharpsburg. And Hagerstown resident Karl Pile paid top dollar - $110 - for it that night at the 4-H/FFA cake auction. Mollie entered a cake using the same recipe last year, but "it didn't really work out," she said.
