      This steals the show every time I make it for a gathering! Sometimes I garnish the sides with loose shredded coconut. Wonderful!

      Thank you, thank you, thank you! Many years ago a very dear neighbor of mine made this for me when I was going through a rough patch to cheer me up. Wow! I loved it. He gave me the recipe but being a military wife I lost it during one our many moves. He sadly passed away and I thought I had lost the recipe forever. But thanks to you I have now made it for my children and grandchildren. It is so moist and unique. We love it during the holidays as a nice twist to traditional fare and look forward to having it during the dog days of summer. Thanks again from all of us.
