      I wanted to point out that the cake recipe does not include milk, but the directions do and don't specify how much. The cake is beautifull, I was making it for my fiance's family because his aged Granny used to make a Southern Living coconut cake, but I paniced about the milk because it is a complicated recipe. They loved it though, thank you.
