This is truly an award winning recipe. I made this and won second place in a baking contest. I only made a minor change. I reserved about 3/4 cup of the coconut and toasted it and put it on the top. I also put extra toasted almond on the top as a garnishment. It is soooo good. I would also recommend poking holes all around the cake to let the sweet mixture seep in. That sent it over the edge in yumminess!!
Made as is, except toasted the almonds. VERY good.
Made for our Christmas Eve Party. I see myself becoming more and more curvy...ala Marilyn Monroe. Bah...humbug.
Made this for my dad. Left out the nuts as he is a Mounds(sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't) fan. Everyone loved it!! Will make it again for sure.
