Another sugar cake recipe that uses larger pieces (chips) of coconut. My favourite sugar cake.

This is a great recipe to throw together. I had some left over coconut from easter in the freezer and it was just enough. Made this as a last minute dessert last night and it was terrific. I will make this again, was nice and sweet! Thanks for sharing. ~V
