Have you ever seen a recipe for a Cozart cake?†A lady who lived in Graceville, FL 
used to make them and they were very popular, and delicious.† She passed away and 
weíre trying to see if anybody else knows the recipe. The cake is basically a 
yellow cake.† The icing has a caramel taste with coconut and pecans. It is not the 
German Chocolate icing, but similar.
Thanks for any help!

Hi Carolyn,

Ok. Let me know. I cannot find any mention at all of a "Cozart Cake", as such, and I can't see any way to proceed without the lady's name.

I received info that her name was Ludean Helms.†Someone also spelled her name Ludine, 
but I think it is Ludean.† Someone posted a recipe but it doesnít sound the same, and 
uses a cake mix. †

Hi Carolyn,

I think it was Ella Ludean Helms, husband Joe Helms.

You say someone posted a recipe? What is the address of that web page? I'd like to look at it.
