This was good. I made everything exactly as directed. I love the coconut streusel. Thanks!
We loved this cake!! Made it to bring over to my parents - and they (and we!) loved it! The cake was moist and very tasty and we loved the little sauce (though we used the whole sauce for about 1/2 the cake!!)! It didn't taste at all like a light cake!! Thanks Cynna!!
