I followed the advice of other reviewers and reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and it was plenty sweet. I also substituted coconut oil for the butter and dropped the coconut flavoring altogether. Although it turned out a little more "oily" than I would have preferred, mixed together, it tasted great. Next time, I might reduce the coconut oil to 1/2 a cup and see if that makes a difference.

Our family just loved this recipe! It was really tasty and we did cut back on the sugar and butter but everyone raved about it!
