Got this fab recipe from a friend. Nice tasting cake without the icing. Be warned the icing is very lemony - a must for lemon lovers.

I made a double batch and baked it in my 10 x 10 pampered chef stoneware pan. I didn't think the cake had enough coconut flavour. Also, the cake was VERY greasy, and the texture was heavy and rubbery. My family likes coconut so they ate it anyway. I made my own version of a lemon- cocnut glaze with toasted coconut, which gave the cake some zing. I'm a baker, and i don't think i will try this one again.

This cake is nice on its own as it is very moist. The lemon and coconut really ices this cake!
