Have made this cake for years. It is very good; however, down here in the South we call it Pig Picking Cake.

I was curious what I would find when I seen the "pea pickin" part of the title.... I was pleasantly suprised to read the ingredients and directions... I've had this before at a work gathering and have wanted the recipe... Thanks for sharing, cant wait to make it :)

Mmmm, sounds good; the title had me scratching my head; thought there were going to be peas in it! (yuck!)
