Chestnut Kiwi Cake recipe question? Need liquid?

I think it is strange because the company that sells the chestnuts also sells kiwis, but I had both in my house so thought I would give it a try. Yes, it is definitely more cobbler like. I think I will do it as is and see what happens. I'll let you know.

Chestnut Kiwi Cake recipe question? Need liquid?

I know it sounds crazy, but I am making a Chestnut Kiwi Cake. I am using the recipe on the back of the chestnut bag and I question the ingredients. I have mixed all the ingredients for the cake part and it is very dry. Does anyone have experience with baking and know whether this would come out correct?

2 cups sugar
2 eggs slightly beaten
4 kiwi mashed
2t baking soda
2 cups flour
1 t vanilla
1 cup chestnuts cooked and chopped

And then it says to pour it into a 13 x 9 pan and bake for 36 minutes. There is no liquid! Seems like there should be milk or oil or something. The batter is slightly moist, but obviously can't be "poured". Any thoughts? There is a topping with cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and more chestnuts, but that isn't supposed to be put together until the cake comes out. Ugh. I am just not a baker, but this doesn't seem right.
Thanks!

Myrtle Beach for Valentine's Day

We will be in Myrtle. How far of a drive is Pawley's or Murrels Inlet?

Myrtle Beach for Valentine's Day

My husband and I will be in Myrtle for Valentine's weekend and I was looking for a recommendation for a date night spot. Our son will be at his grandmother's so I'm hoping for a nice date night alone. I would love to go to a local spot. Definitely NO chains. Thanks in advance!
