Nobody else in my family loves coconut as much as me. Coconut anything... This cake is so delicious and moist and I can't stay away from it. The cream cheese icing recipe I use to frost it is the same as some posted here.

Wow! This was great! The pudding inside the batter made it so moist and coconut-ty. To help in the calorie department I used whip cream as icing. It was perfect for a warm summer night!

A delicous, moist cake that I'm going to rate without stars because of changes. Didn't have pudding mix so subbed cornstarch and used coconut milk for the liquid. We'll be making this one again.

Lovely, light, moist cake - thank you! My husband had two pieces and kept making "mmmmm" noises. :-)
