AWESOME!! As each day goes by this pudding cake mellows and gets better. A very moist cake with a creamy custard on the bottom. This cake is lighter than it appears and would be a good after dinner dessert for guests.

Super delicious cake. I made whipped cream, not too sweet, and folded it into the coconut pudding. Perfect
