Very rich and moist, I love the cr. cheese. You can test this cake with a cake tester. Another keeper!!

Took this cake to a party the first time I made it and was a little frightened at it's appearance. When I flipped it out of the cake pan it kind of sank in the middle and looked like it wasn't quite done cooking. It was though and it tastes FABULOUS if you can ignore how it looks. It's very rich and moist and the coconut and pecans add a nice crunch. Thanks for a great recipe and an interesting conversation piece!
